Knott Rigg is the southern most of two fells found on the short ridge running from Birk Rigg in Newlands Valley to the top of Newlands Pass.
This is a fell that you'd possibly get away with describing as a little insignificant. And while this may be the case for Knott Rigg itself, its location can be described as anything but insignificant. More often than not, Knott Rigg is linked up with with Ard Crags to make a short walk. For the more inventive of route planners out there, the fell can easily be included on long challenging walks taking you as far the Grasmoor or the Dale Head fells.
