Overview

A lovely walk with fantastic views over Ullswater. We start from near Pooley Bridge and walk along tracks and footpaths to climb up to the path overlooking the lake, then up a bit more to the highest point, Arthur's Pike, before returning via the Stone Circle and up again to the scar at Heughscar Hill, before descending back to the cars at Roehead.
