What Wainwright said:

"For most walkers, the fells proper in this region start at Garburn Pass and rise to the north, but there are two hills, twins almost immediately to the south of the Pass worth a mention although these are not strictly walkers' territory. The higher of the two is named Sallows, and has much more merit as a viewpoint."

Sallows is the highest point in the upland area south of Garburn Pass referred as Kentmere Park and Applethwaite Common on the OS maps. The summit features a 30ft long mound of shale topped by the smallest of cairns.

There is a good view westwards to the Scafell and Coniston Old Man groups
