Scandale Pass

 


Scandale Pass offers an alternative to Kirkstone Pass for those travelling between Patterdale and Ambleside. And while Kirkstone Pass is trying to cope with the demands of modern traffic, Scandale Pass remains a place of peace and quiet, accessible only to those on foot. You'll rarely find the place totally deserted but compared to many other areas you will find some degree of solitude.

The northern half of the pass, flanked by Middle Dodd and High Hartsop Dodd, has the curiously Scottish sounding name of Caiston Glen.
