This fell with the prosaic name is, to look at, the least attractive of the group around Buttermere, a defect largely due to its position on the sunny side of the valley. Lack of shadow always reduces the visual appeal of mountain scenery, and on Robinson the steep slopes rise blandly to the sky with nothing in particular to attract the eye, nothing to exercise curiosity and imagination - in complete contrast to the darkly and mysterious and more challenging heights across the lake.
