Mungrisdale Common's natural attractions are of a type that appeals only top sheep: it is more an upland prairie than a hill. There is little on these extensive grass slopes to provide passing interest for a ordinary walker, and nothing to encourage a visit. Sinen Gill, however, has long be known to geologists, the shy Skiddaw granite here, in the heart of slate country, revealing itself as a surface rock.
