We could no longer walk this route as no access to this hill as on private land. The farmer said that there was no access via scales farm on or off his land or from the fell above.

That's a shame. Looking at Burthwaite Heights on 1:25K it's not Access Land, unlike Ling Fell to the west, so the farmer is completely within their rights to send you on your way.

It's a shame though, given it's a Birkett. :?
