Bypassing Lower Man, a walker of reasonable fitness should be able to reach the top in less than two and a half hours. Up until the late 1950s, it housed shepherds as well as gamekeepers and shooting parties, only beginning its present incarnation as a youth hostel in 1987. The track is ridiculously wide and obvious now as it heads first northwest then after meeting a few paths from the left heads directly north straight to the summit of Skiddaw. Latrigg is the small hill to the south of the car park.

Located at 1542ft (470m) above sea level and 3.5 miles from the nearest road, Skiddaw House was built in 1829 for the Earl of Egremont. Go straight ahead at the roundabout from Keswick and then take an almost immediate right down a country lane towards Ormathwaite. Lakes, Alfred Wainwright would have loved the idea that so many people who could never have imagined seeing that perfect view could now do so on this smaller hill. It’s easily ascended from Keswick and the views from the bench close to its 1207ft (368m) top are among the finest in the district, looking out over the town and its lake. It is made of well-compacted stone but with a short section with a 1:7 gradient, it’s not suitable for people operating their own wheelchairs. On an evening descent the views on the way back that were behind you on the ascent are now there for you to see and the sun will be setting behind the Derwent Fells. Find parking charges, opening hours and a parking map of all Skiddaw car parks, street parking, pay and display, parking meters and private garages To the west looking over probably Skiddaw's best ascent route the Long Side ridge you'll see the Irish Sea and the Isle of Man on a good day. At 3054ft (931m) above sea level, Skiddaw’s position close to the northern edge of the Lake District means those who climb it will be treated to particularly good views across the Solway Firth to the hills of southern Scotland. The Howell Memorial was built in recognition of three shepherds of the Howell family who worked on Lonscale Fell, there are a few nice sentences to them on the memorial itself worth reading. From the memorial the path now starts to climb quite steeply in a rather erratic zig zag fashion up Jenkin Hill following the left side of Whit Beck. The sedimentary slate beds created here are extremely thick and in areas can even affect a compass bearing so be warned. Showing images tagged with car park:Gale Road Car Park tag. From the car park the way is signposted very clearly. Despite its small height of only 368m above sea level it is actually on the Wainwright list and if you ever go to the top and take a look at the view down Derwentwater into the jaws of Borrowdale you'll more than understand why Mr Alfred Wainwright included it in his magical illustrations.
