Sprinkling Tarn

 

Map
   

Arguably Sprinkling Tarn is one of the most beautiful tarns in the Lake District. Not as grand as, for example Tarn Hows, or Whatendlath Tarn, and apart from the view across to Great Gable, from the tarn itsself the panoramic views other tarns boast are notably absent. However the tarn and the hollow in which it sits can show off a beauty on a smaller scale.
