The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

High Stile, Buttermere, Coast to Coast

High Stile, Buttermere, Coast to Coast

High Stile sits on the Red Pike to Haystacks ridge top, standing at 806 metres. South of High Stile is the Ennerdale Valley and the Coast to Coast walk. To its north is Buttermere. High Stile can be approached from the Ennerdale Valley, via a path climbing from High Gillerthwaite to Red Pike. Alternatively it can be approached from Buttermere village via Sourmilk Gill and Bleaberry Tarn, or from Scarth Gap via Gamilin End and High Crag.

High Stile is the highest mountain in the ridge commencing with Great Bourne to the west and concluding with Hay Stacks to the east. When the sky is clear the panorama from High Stile is phenomenal. Ennerdale Water is visible in the west, Buttermere in the north. Crummock Water and Loweswater can be seen to the north and north west, making 4 of Lakeland's best.

Although the ridge top is wide there are steep cliffs on either side, particularly to the north, where Chapel Crags, Eagle Crag and Comb Crags lie.
