What Wainwright said:

"The simple, uncomplicated pyramid of Longlands Fell terminates the nowrthwest ridge of Great Sca Fell. It marks the end of Lakeland in this direction: beyond is a pleasant countryside extending to the Solway Firth. It is a neat little hill, conspicuous in many views".

Longlands Fell is situated in the high ground known as the Uldale Fells, 5.5 kilometres south west of the village of Caldbeck and it is the most northerly fell in the Lake District.

Longlands Fell is characterised by grassy, smooth slopes which drop down gradually to the lowlands north of Lakeland making the ascent of the fell quite easy from that direction.

The view from the top takes in the Solway Firth and the Galloway hills to the north. To the south are good views of Skiddaw with the fells around the Whinlatter forest well seen.
