Low Fell's summit and superb view
What Wainwright said:

"The lesser heights and foothills of Lakeland, especially those on the fringe, are too much neglected in favour of the greater mountains, yet many of these unsought and unfashionable little hills are completely charming. In this category is Low Fell".

Low Fell overlooks the lake of Loweswater to the south and to the north is bordered by its neighbour Fellbarrow.

Low Fell and Fellbarrow form a ridge two miles long, with the somewhat contrarily named Low Fell being the higher.

There are views to Grasmoor, across the Lorton Vale and down the Buttermere valley in which you can see Crummock Water and Buttermere.
