Scoat Fell

Overview
Height: 2,760 Feet - 841 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 159 113
Area: Western
Ordnance Survey: OL4
Wainwright Guidebook: Seven

Although often climbed from Wasdale as part of the 'Mosedale Horseshoe', Scoat Fell has no fan club and few devotees, for the long plateau forming the top compares infavourably with the more shapely summits of other fells even easier of access from Wasdale Head; the top of the mountain is never improved by mans handy work, only a simple cairn being acceptable.
