Until you get to know the fells, recognising the peaks visible from a particular summit can be tricky. That’s why there are four hand-drawn panoramas – displaying the views from each summit in all four compass directions – for every fell in our guides.

These guidebooks provide a comprehensive exploration of the main paths and alternative routes to each summit, all accompanied by hand-drawn topographical maps (topos) and summit panoramas. You'll have the freedom to devise your own routes or choose from a variety of ascents, descents, and ridge routes. This versatility allows you to discover hidden treasures away from the crowded trails and explore "fell-friendly" routes designed to minimise environmental impact.
