Starting Point Information Centre
Car park, Dobgill, Thirlmere

In stark contrast to the eastern side of Thirlmere this is a wonderfully quiet area with a succession of car parks along the road between Wythburn and Thirlmere dam.

Dobgill car park is free, has ample parking, public toilets and a convenient route up to the central ridge via Harrop Tarn.
