High House Tarn

 

Map

 

At over 2100 feet this is one of the highest tarns in the Lake District. The tarn itself isn’t that impressive compared to some of the larger and lower level tarns. Most people don’t even consider this tarn worthy of exploration. On a couple of occasions when I’ve been at the tarn, other walkers have continued on their way without giving the tarn a second glance. This is a shame, because all of these small high tarns have an individual beauty, and an atmosphere about them.
