Coniston Old Man. The Lake District
At a height of 803m high Coniston Old Man gets great views over the Southern Lake District. At the top, you look down onto Low Water, Coniston village and Coniston water on one side.
Turn to your right and you will see the Dow Crag ridge cutting through the skyline and if you’re lucky, you will even see the Isle of man. One more turn to your right and you get a view of the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike.
This is my closest decent sized hill and it’s where I go whenever I have a few spare hours or new equipment to test out. In the 40-50 times I’ve been up, there’s always something new that you notice.
