Lake District walks - Styhead Tarn

Looking up from Styhead Tarn at Great End, which forms the northern (left) end of the ridge culminating in Scafell Pike, off to the right

and in summer. Styhead Tarn is just over the first bump, and you can see Scafell Pike in the distance.

Styhead Tarn, with Borrowdale down below. Not much to it, but an excellent spot for a stop, especially on the way up, when you can have a look around while ruminating on the valiant feats still to come...

Just below Styhead, on a January afternoon. The path to Stockley Bridge is on the right of the bridge, the path to Taylor Gill Force goes left.

In summer, with Samba girding herself for the "big one" - Scafell Pike ahead!

At the tarn, looking due south. The smaller fell in front of Great End is Spout Head. As the path starts to climb to its left, you turn right onto the Corridor Route to Scafell Pike.
