Skiddaw mountain is situated in the Lake District within the National Park. Situated north of the town of Keswick it dominates the sky line and is the fourth highest mountain in England. The name Skiddaw derives from its surrounding area of Skiddaw Forest and Back o Skidda.

You will find that Skiddaw is one of the simpler mountains in the Lake District to ascend with its generally rounded and convex slopes. On the ridges the terrain is of loose stones but elsewhere Skiddaw is covered in grass and heather. This makes it an easier and more pleasant climb and can be walked to directly from the doorstep of Highside Farm. What more could you keen walkers want!
