A circular from Patterdale up to Boredale Hause and then around up on to Place Fell itself. Wainwright said of Place Fell "Few fells are so well favoured as Place Fell for appraising neighbouring heights. It occupies an exceptionally good position in the curve of Ullswater, in the centre of a great bowl of hills; its summit commands a very beautiful and impressive panorama. On a first visit to Patterdale, Place Fell should be an early objective, for no other viewpoint gives such an appreciation of the design of this lovely corner of Lakeland." The walk then follows the broad ridge to the North-East to gradually descend close to Scalehow Beck and its waterfalls to reach Ullswater. The final three miles of the walk back to Patterdale follow close to the shore of Ullswater along its undulating shoreline path.
