Parking area due N. Pleasant walk S along Scout Scar taking in a couple of 'hills' on the way. Pillar has no centre cap and is unplugged; all sight holes open. There is minor chipping to the top edges and the whole thing is a little care-worn, but nothing significant. Full panoramic views, but a bit limited to the S.

This trig was an absolute delight after several days of getting rubbish views from the tops. Shows what a poor winter this has been as I've only given one other nine since the Western Isles last September. Two knocks to top corners and a crack running from the S of the flush bracket so 'slightly damaged'.

Astonishingly a lovely viewpoint and well sited trig point. The limestone edge is very open and has a very distinct scarp face facing westwards. Ensure you visit the mushroom viewpoint as is has a superb toposcope displayed on the inside of the mushroom cap.

Its a good few years since i last came up here & i had forgotten what a lovely spot it is. Walked up from Kendal station via Underbarrow road then on to the path which takes you up on to the limestone pavement that is Scout Scar. After visiting the viewing shelter i carried on to the trig further along the ridge. Descended by the wall & then the path on to Brigsteer road & back to Kendal town centre. Great views on the top.

The nearby circular mushroom viewing area had all the distant landmarks identified, which was very helpful. Plug was missing and infilled with stones. Great end to a weekend trip to the Lakes.
