Easy safe walk from Grasmere. Great views over Central Fells. Best combined with walks to Great Rigg or Heron Pike

Stone Arthur often over looked, as Dollywagon Pike and Fairfield are higher and up the same path. Once you have been up Stone Arthur you have to come down this fell to go on to another, There is NO ridge walk to the next fell..It's...More

a good stiff steep walk up but if you have time carry on up fairfield to complete the fairfield horseshoe a great circular walk 5.5-6 hours round but worth ever step

A 45 minute walk up a clear steep path, mostly steps and stone. Carry on to Great Rigg and Fairfield or just stop for the magical view over Grasmere to the Pikes, Bowfell, Coniston (I could see Wildcat Island), Windermere and northwards to Helvellyn.

Not particularly a walk in itself but as part of the route from Heron Pike, and great rigg, great views can be seen from stone Arthur as dropping into Grasmere for a hot toddy before returning back to Rydal

We wouldn't recommend Stone Arthur as a destination in its own right. In our opinion, it's a point of interest to be combined as part of a longer walk. We took the path up from behind the Swan Hotel on A591 and then followed the...More

Best climb is direct from Grasmere, following the path the zig-zags steeply up the hillside above the small housing estate behind The Swan hotel. The 'top' is hard to define, the highest of several rocky outcrops on this slope which is really a spur from...More

Go up from the Swan Hotel and follow the easy and well marked path, a steepish climb with good views; you can continue past Stone Arthur up to Great Rigg on the Fairfield Horseshoe and then up to Fairfield. The return journey down to Mill...More

It's a Wainwright so worth a visit. Steep climb to start but stop and enjoy the views. Make sure weather forecast is good top is easily hidden on a bad day.
