The views on the travelled side of the lake certainly deserve great attention; and the one here given is about a mile from its foot.
The road, which is of a fine elevation above the water, is seen meandering among the rocks to a good distance. Yewbarrow lies on the left; part of the Screes are on the right; Wastdale head, at the end of the lake, by its enclosures serves as a scale whereby to judge the vastness of the mountains; and over them is Great Gable, so called from its resemblance to the roof of a house. Between Gable and Yewbarrow is seen a part of Kirk Fell, and between Gable and the Screes, Lingmell.



Schofell, with its adjoining part of the Screes, is thus viewed from a point between the road and the lake, about half way between its foot and head.



Goldrill Crag is upon the river Dudden. The river Dudden crosses the horse and foot road to Wast Water at Cockley Beck, which is ten miles from Ambleside over Wrynose. Goldrill Crag is two miles down the river, being 12 miles from Ambleside and about 14 miles from the foot of Wast Water.
The river Dudden divides Lancashire and Cumberland, from the county stones on Wrynose to its junction with the Irish Sea; consequently the scene before us is in both counties.
This view is up the river: the trees are in Lancashire, and Goldrill Crag, which is on the left, is in Cumberland.
