"the steep flank overlooking Ullswater is beautifully wooded whilst the views of the lake from the Brown Hills, midway along the ridge, are of high quality."
A.W Wainwright

The eastern flank of Stybarrow Dodd descends over a long grassy ridge to the shores of Ullswater, this ridge descends over the summit of Hart Side, one of the least frequented summits in the Lake District.

Over the years Hart Side has probably been better known to the miners from Glenridding, the fellside has been heavily mined over the years including several trenches on the summit.
