a good stiff steep walk up but if you have time carry on up fairfield to complete the fairfield horseshoe a great circular walk 5.5-6 hours round but worth ever step

A 45 minute walk up a clear steep path, mostly steps and stone. Carry on to Great Rigg and Fairfield or just stop for the magical view over Grasmere to the Pikes, Bowfell, Coniston (I could see Wildcat Island), Windermere and northwards to Helvellyn.

Not particularly a walk in itself but as part of the route from Heron Pike, and great rigg, great views can be seen from stone Arthur as dropping into Grasmere for a hot toddy before returning back to Rydal

It's a Wainwright so worth a visit. Steep climb to start but stop and enjoy the views. Make sure weather forecast is good top is easily hidden on a bad day.

Lovely walk from the back of the Mcdonald Swan Hotel. Fantastic views for little effort. Great if you haven't got a lot of time.
