Starting Point Information Centre
Roadside, The Hause (Little Mell Fell)

More often than not, The Hause is used as a point for quick access to Little Mell Fell. And although I've done this myself on many occasions, there are actually a decent selection of walk that could be done from here. There aren't many spaces, but you'll rarely have a problem getting parked here.


Route Map

From the path up Little Mell Fell, looking back down to The Hause.
The weather wasn't great today, so I thought I 'd try a new route that linked two of the smaller fells. I'd never walked through Swinburn's Park or over Great Meldrum before so this was a good day to try something new.
