Route Map

 

 

 

 

The walk starts from the village of High Nibthwaite and the short but steep ascent to the summit of Brock Barrow begins immediately.

 

The effort is soon rewarded with a superb view from the summit cairn across Coniston Water to the Coniston Fells.

 

The view along the tough grassy / heathery ridge towards Top o' Selside.

 

The view from the second summit cairn is even better.

 

The Coniston Fells.

 

Arnsborrow Tarn lies in a boggy depression to the east of Top o' Selside.
