Coniston Old Man

The Old Man of Coniston is the 12th highest peak in England. At 803 metres (2276 feet) it is a small mountain, but a challenging enough climb for an average walker. What it lacks in height it makes up for in views, offering a commanding view of two beautiful lakes and the dramatic sight of Goats Water (tarn) cowering under the forbidding cliffs of Dow Crag. The return path passes Low Water, another tarn, but with grassy edges and sparkling water in complete contrast with the dark face of Goats Water. The conical summit also provides views of the Langdale Pikes and the Scafell range.

Scafell Pike

At 978 m (3,209 feet)  Scafell Pike is an unforgiving mountain and is not pretty in itself. However, it stands watch over one of England's most beautiful regions and presents a challenge that keen walkers like to face. In good visibility the view from the top is just reward for the effort taken to get there. This is a serious mountain. By international standards it is small, but its rocky approaches test the leg muscles and demand an effort. The weather can change quickly, so check the forecast and take suitable clothing.
