Hart Side

Overview
Height: 2,481 Feet - 756 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 359 197
Area: Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: One

The principle height of this spur is Hart Side, which with its many satellites on the declining ridge forms the southern wall of the long valley of Deep Dale throughout its sinuous course, its opposite boundary being the short deep trench of Glencoyne. The upper slopes of this bulky mass are unattractive in themselves, but, in strong contrast, the steep flank over looking Ullswater is beautifully wooded, while the views of the lake from the Brown Hills, midway along the ridge are of high quality.
