Climbing Arnside Knott

  • Limestone fell perched on the coast
  • Great views through the trees in all directions
  • Add a pleasant shoreline stroll

Initially climbed a few years ago in a 20 minute dash after a game of golf and before being chastised by the family for being late Arnside Knott is worthy of a much more detailed exploration. It is a cracking little hill, outcrops of limestone mixed with areas of dense woodland offer glimpses of the spectacular views that make this a must do little fell. To the North the shallows of the Grange estuary take the eye dramatically to the southern Lakeland fells (see if you can spot the Langdale Crags, oddly shaped from here) whilst the views to the south and west are dominated by the sands of Morecambe Bay (not to be walked on but great to look at). Add on an initial stroll along the shoreline and this adds up to a very pleasant afternoon walk.

Recommend: Try and pick a clear day to climb Arnside Knott, the views are truly impressive
