GOWBARROW FELL & AIRA FORCE
Follow the path to Aira Force waterfalls from Gowbarrow fell and take in some of the best Lake District landscape. Pass Lyluph’s pele tower and uncover the inspiration for many characters in the novel Tarzan.
Gowbarrow is a fell that many people never take the time to climb, and that’s a shame – it’s not too tough, it has super views over Ullswater, and it can be combined with a visit to one of the Lake District’s most scenic (and best-known) waterfalls – Aira Force. The walk can be boggy and muddy when the weather’s wet, however, and if you’re not an experienced walker, trail-finding can be tricky if it’s cloudy or misty – so it’s best to leave this one for a bright, clear day.
