"A low hill with a summit worthy of a mountain."
A.W Wainwright

A wonderful lower fell overlooking the head of Ullswater with a fine rocky summit. Arnison Crag is a wonderful short walk or a good alternative to the main paths over Birks and Saint Sundays Crag.

The view north from the summit over Ullswater is spectacular and well worth the detour if descending over Birks to Patterdale below.
