Fashions change. When people climbed hills only for the sake of the views, the heathery summit of Glenridding Dodd must have been more frequented than it is today, for once popular paths of ascent are now overgrown and neglected. It occupies a grand position over looking the upper reach of Ullswater. It is the end, topographically of the eastern shoulder of Stybarrow Dodd.
