Grassgarth Heights from SD 36000 83325ronaldo33318/11/2017
From entrance at High Gate to Bigland Hall, easy parking in area opposite, by gateway. Followed ROW round tarn and through wall, loosely fenced, to gain hill over land with no right of access, even with no right of way signs, but v easy. We could see why people don't have trouble visiting the HP. Same way back. Drizzly then dry, cloud around Gummer's How but base mostly 1500 ft. With Petepwheeler04/10/2017

Round of Stavely Fell, Bigland Barrow and Grassgarth Heights from X6 bus stop at Newby Bridge. Up from the road initially through the wood wood but then highly vsible. Down to bridle way west of the tarn which would be the better choice, given all the Keep Out signs.Eddie24/01/2015
From Cark via Mount Barnard, Ellerside and Stribers Brow. Easy trespass from the edge of the woods. Nice big cairn atop but the weather was foul and ruined any views. Went directly west to visit Bigland Heights before dropping down to the road. I had to hitch back to Cark as there's no pavement on the road, blind corners and drivers seemed to be treating it as a racetrack. Avoid walking along it if you can!Jake99421/12/2014

From entrance to Bigland Hall, mainly a horse riding centre. Room for at least one car in opposite gateway. Followed lane then FP round tarn to gain hill. Crossing the forbidden land v easy, seem keener to keep folk from going around the lake. Good views of S Lakesnordicstar23/07/2012
