Once up there the views over Derwentwater to the North Western Fells are stunning as is the view south to the Scafell group of hills. Looking from the top, Great Gable appears to be the highest of the Lakeland Fells and not Scafell Pike. This is possibly because its summit stands in isolation and is quite pointed.
You can then either continue your walk to Ashness Bridge and come back via Derwentwater shore or if to are feeling more energetic, you can carry on up to the higher Bleaberry Fell. I was feeling lazy that day and just parked myself on the top of Walla Crag and took in the fabulous views before strolling back down.
These are photos of my little stroll, hope you enjoy them.
