Easy Fell Walk up Ling Fell and Sale Fell Details

Ling Fell and Sale Fell are a pair of small fells overlooking Bassenthwaite in the Lake District’s North Western Fells. With a highest point of 373 m on Ling Fell, this is an ideal lower summit to avoid the clag or when you want an easier summit. These are also an option for when you want a quieter walk, as they’re less popular than walks from the usual honeypots.
