    Castle crag privides a brilliant vantage point of the surrounding area, long long way from being a classed as a big peak, but the climb up and down can be difficult, it is worth it to take some time at the top and look in all directions.

    Very special castle, looks like it's built on a pile of rocks.
    Top great panoramic views.

    Legendary fell walker and author Alfred Wainwright said: “If a visitor to Lakeland has only two or three hours to spare, poor fellow, yet desperately wants to reach a summit and take back an enduring memory of the beauty of the district.....let him climb Castle Crag." I think Wainwright sums it up perfectly here. Well worth a visit.

    The walk up from Rosthwaite is delightful - partly on the Cumbria Way before peeling off to ascend the hill. A small Wainwright with a big impact (views)
