Thanks to Melissa Stephenson for adding this peak.

Looks like like an easy walk through leafy bracken for the leisurely rambler. In good weather, fantastic views from about a third of the way up of green patchwork fields below. In late August, you can pick the lovely English delicacy of bilberries so take a tub with you to collect them in!

The Fell is deceptive, becoming more craggy and difficult to walk up and the summit always appears to be around the next corner. The weather at the summit can be very cold, windy and wet and visibility suddenly very poor.

Percy Bysshe Shelley is meant to have enjoyed climbing this Fell as it appealed to his love of the power and romance of nature.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Carrick Fell in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
