Top 3 lesser know viewpoints from Lake District fells

There are many iconic viewpoints in the Lake District, but what of the lesser known ones? While there is beauty in the popular spots, there is something about the quiet solitude of a view all to yourself.

Here then are the top 3 lesser known viewpoints from Lake District fells

Harter Fell

Overlooking the highest, and busiest areas in the Lake District, the Scafell Massif (home to Scafell Pike), Harter Fell offers comanding views of not only the fells, but also the coast. A trip here in winter provides a show of the stunning light on the Scafells, well worth the trip over to Eskdale.

Low Fell

While Buttermere is an immensely popular area of the Lake District, this diminutive fell overlooking it is surprisingly quiet. With spectacular views of Loweswater and down the Buttermere Valley and over to the high fells, this fell is well worth a trip to if you want some quiet contemplation with a stunning view.

Thrang Crag

There seems to be a theme here, a quiet fell, overlooking a busy location. This is no different for Thrang Crag, overlooking the bustling Langdale Valley. Most easily accessed off Loughrigg, it gives a beautiful view of the network of fields that make up the Langdale Valley. Autumn is the best time to go, with the light illuminating the patchwork in the valley floor
