Without its prominent tor of steep rock, Stone Arthur would probably never have a name for it is merely the abrubt end of a spur of Great Rigg although it has the appearance of a separate fell when seen from Grasmere.The outcrop occurs where the gradual decline of the spur becomes pronounced and here are the short walls of rock, like a ruined castle, that gives Stone Arthur its touch of distinction.
