About Robinson

Robinson stands among its fellow North Western Fells on the north eastern shore of Buttermere. It is part of a series of fells that line the south western side of the Newlands Valley. Its southern slopes descend towards Buttermere while the northern side falls within the Newlands Valley. It stands at an elevation of 737 m (2,418 ft) with a prominence of 161 m (528 ft), earning it listings as a Marilyn, a Hewitt and a Nuttall, as well as being classed as one of Wainwright’s fells. Its parent peak is Dale Head.

The summit is rounded and mainly grassy with two low outcrops of rock. The one to the west is the summit and is marked with a cairn. There are excellent views of the Coledale Fells, the Scafell range to the south and a view down Newlands valley to the north. However, the immediate view of the surrounding area is foreshortened by the summit’s broad plateau.

Climbing Robinson

Ascents of Robinson usually begin in the village of Buttermere itself, from where there is a good path leading up via High Snockrigg, a walk of around 9 km (5 mi). Where the path emerges at the top to cross Buttermere Moss, the ground can be very wet in places. A return path to Buttermere follows the lakeshore path with views across the lake to Red Pike and High Stile.
