Kirkland > Greg's Hut > Cross Fell > Little Dun Fell > Great Dun Fell > Knock Old Man > Meldon Hill > Viewing Hill > Round Hill > Greg's Hut > Kirkland. One of the hardest and most ambitious walk I have ever done. Hardest bag was the walk to Meldon Hill from Knock Old Man due the the terrain. Otherwise the hardest parts were the river crossings required for the route I took. Drizzly rain for pretty much all the time and had to walk to Greg's hut and back from/to Kirkland in dark with head torch. Solo. Don't know how far I walked but my watch said 64,000 steps / 6,000 kcsl mostly 'off-piste'.axoree14/08/2019

Walked on my own from Garrigill. uGlorious spring sunshine with a light breeze. Wonderful views from this summit especially towards Cross Fell.flockwatcher02/04/2017
last hill of the day and a very long walk back due to leaving car much further down the hill and revisiting great dun fell as i couldn't see anything this morning 23 miles in totalcolinfielding13/05/2016
Overnighted just over the watershed from the source of the s.tyne. walked up past Moor house and out and back to Knock Fell. Then over the Duns to Cross Fell and then out to Round Hill via Gregs Hut. So to my last N.Pen Hewitt. The crossing of crossgill pants didnt look inviting at all. however upon arrival I saw that there had been a plastic mesh laid down and so followed this away from the wall/fence and it led all the way to Cross Gill quickly and without incident. I then made my way through burnt heather and a few squelchy sections gradually meeting up with the fence again. far better than I'd dared hope for. The wall encountered higher up does not have a gate etc. so it's either climb over the wall or cross it at the fence just before the summit cone rises. A small cairn with a lovely view to the hills west and to Cow Green. Descended back to track and car.stig_nest08/08/2015

From Garrigill, drove up the road towards source of South Tyne. Walked on 2.5km (as the remnants of Hurricane Bertha approached and the skies darkened) and then turned up to the summit. Returned amidst thunder, lightning and torrential rain. A delightfully refreshing walk after 5 hours on the motorway!ruthatlast08/08/2014

Parked in field by track to Hole House at NY 75645 39029, as lane beyond Hill House impassable due to snow. Took Tyne Head track to just beyond a stand of fir trees after cattle grid. Then faint track up Noonstones Hill, leaving track to do an ascending traverse SW to north ridge of fell, and thence to small cairn marking the summit. Descended east by a track to River South Tyne and then by Tyne Head track to starting point. Winter conditions, with deep wind-blown snow, fierce NE wind, but strong sunshine.

With Dad. Definitely the worst Nuttall I've yet done. Followed the fence and would not recommend - lots of peat hags. Nothing particularly interesting about it.AGWilliamson13/06/2011

The summit is a small pile of stones 100M from the feance gate. If sit next to the drystone wall it keeps you out of the elements.Mc Tango12/04/2011
