"The lovely countryside around the head of Windermere is delightfully pictured, this being the best viewpoint for the sylvan charms of the area between Ambleside, Wray Castle and Hawkshead."

Black Fell, nestled above Tarn Hows makes a wonderful short excursion with stunning views throughout. Recent tree clearances of the fellside below the summit have opened up the views with stunning aspects over Coniston and Windermere.

A good low level route can be made by combining Black Fell with Holme Fell to the west.
