Risotto on Loughrigg Fell

Risotto on Loughrigg Fell

2nd July 2019

Loughrigg Fell just on the outskirts of Ambleside and thirty minutes from Rydal Hall is a superb vantage point for the surrounding fells. For one so short in stature it makes up for any lacking in height by having fantastic views all around and an interesting, complicated top.

This walk takes you over the top of Loughrigg Fell, along the airy Loughrigg Terrace and the permissive path to Rydal Cave. The return to Rydal is along the quiet Under Loughrigg road.

Rydal Cave is a man-made quarry which in its heyday of the 19th century produced high-quality roofing slates. Whilst access to the cave is not difficult and many people do cross the stepping stones to its interior, be aware that occasionally blocks do fall from the ceiling!

Hope you enjoy and be inspired by the amazing views as much as Gaynor, our Finance Officer, and her husband Morten did when they had dinner up on Loughrigg.
