This pleasant stroll situated at the head of Ullswater is ideal for a short winter's afternoon when the higher fells are perhaps out of bounds. An embankment and ditch from an iron age fort are still just discernible at the top. In winter you may catch a glimpse of Ullswater through the trees but in summer the leaves obscure even that, and a thick undergrowth of nettles encroach the paths.

The locals and Wainwright call it Dunmallet, but is marked as Dunmallard Hill on the OS 1:25K map.
