9. The Head Of Ullswater



The Head of Ullswater. - The upper recesses of Ullswater are enclosed by the High Street Range, St. Sunday's Crag and Helvellyn. The latter mountains are well shown in the opposite picture; the gap between them, beyond the wooded spur of Hallin Fell, is the Grisdale Valley, which leads by way of Grisdale Pass and Tarn over to Grasmere.a favourite mountain walk amid wild and rugged scenery. The hotels and private apartments of Glenridding, as seen across the lake, are greatly favoured bj' Lakeland visitors. Comfortable steam yachts ply the full length of the lake throughout the season, and time should be made to take the return trip, as it affords the best way of seeing the full beauty of Ullswater.
