Scafell, the second highest mountain in England, should not be confused with its slightly higher neighbour Scafell Pike, from which it is separated by Mickledore and Broad Stand.
You are advised not to attempt to climb Broad Stand, as tempting as it may appear those without climbing experience and equipment end up cragfast and in need of Mountain Rescue assistance. The path via Foxes Tarn involves some scrambling but is much safer.
