Four Stones Tarn is an altogether misleading name. That is if you were relying on the fact that you'd located "four" stones as confirmation that you were indeed in the correct place. Close to the tarn however, you will actually find ancient standing stones, unfortunately only two remain and not the four which were here at one time. In addition to the standing stones found to the west of the tarn, a little to the east is an ancient cairn (burial??).
This shallow little tarn is found in a grassy hollow below Four Stones Hill, itself found on the quiet fells around the wider area of Bampton Common. I always try to have a positive view of everything I see in the Lake District; trying to find beauty in all things, as it were. And while the setting in which the tarn is found cannot be faulted in anyway, I'm afraid the tarn lags behind many of its contemporaries as far as attractiveness goes.
