From the car park at the junction, round of the Soulby tops. Ground exceedingly wet underfootColin Crawford20/02/2020
Ascended from Soulby Fell, having followed permissive paths from Bennethead. Following the Ullswater Way would be a better approach.JohnW25/11/2019
Parking for about 4 cars opposite the boathouse just after Pooley Bridge. A concessionary path leads up to the summit field. The bends can easily be short-cut starting immediately as you enter the first field. The last bend can also be avoided by, once you reach the stile alongside the trees where the path turns back on itself, heading straight up alongside the fence. Takes you directly to the summit field.moorsman16/10/2019

RoW leading E from quiet lane to N of Wreay. Down and across fields into lane, then to obvious barn (very squalid around here). Hedge line followed to gently rounded summit. Continued to Soulby Fell.Aye Jimmy18/03/2015

Across from Soulby Fell. Some very large cowsmcbiydw205/08/2014
From parking on road just past Wrey, took permitted path through long grass, then cut up steeply to Soulby hill from lovely Maiden Castle. Lot of cows on top. Back down and up from barn to Salmond's Hill. More very long grass to wade through. Lovely views of Ullswater and hills on a balmy warm evening.nordicstar26/06/2014
Aira Force to Pooley Bridge. Both me and my girlfriend were very taken aback by the beautiful views up Ullswater, an unexpected treat. Lovely paths through the woods too. Far more satisfying than Dunmallet.Jake99428/11/2013
