From Ashstead Fell, tricky descent to col and stroll up to top. Nice hill.arranc30/03/2016
Climbed from Roundthwaite Abbey to Jeffrey's Mount along ridge to Whinash. Dropped down into Borrowdale and climbed back up the other side to Ashstead Fell, Mabbin Crag and Whinfell Common before dropping back into Borrowdale and following the dale back to the A685 and return to start. Very enjoyable and peaceful walking.meltdiceburg30/01/2016
A good path leads over the hill from Ashtead Fell. The forest does not interfere with the route and probably enhances it.JohnW05/10/2015

Having had a hard walk last weekend taking in 8 Wainwrights, I'd promised myself a weekend doing nothing, but it was far too nice for that, so out came the boots. Parked at the bottom of Borrowdale just off the A685, then up to Whinfell Beacon, Castle Fell, Mabbin Crag, Ashstead Fell, down to the A6 and returned down the valley.Chipstertrain06/09/2015
