Latrigg is one of Lakeland’s lowest fells, at an elevation of 368 m (1,207 ft) and with a prominence of around 70 m (230 ft). It is very popular with walkers because of its accessible location, overlooking Keswick, and the views it commands over the town, Derwentwater and Borrowdale beyond.
It is also the easiest of Wainwright’s fells to summit – a mere ten-minute walk from the end of Gale Road. Its parent peak is Skiddaw, where some walkers proceed after reaching the top of Latrigg. A ditch and parapet run across the top, and there are also views across to Skiddaw and Blencathra.
