You could argue that Rampsgill Head isn't actually a fell in its own right, and it's really just an area of slightly higher ground between The Knott, Kidsty Pike and High Raise. Well, you could be right, who knows. Whether is or isn't a proper fell is a pointless argument in my opinion. What is certain about Rampsgill Head are the superb views down to the valleys on the eastern side of Ullswater and the surrounding fells.
It's never impossible to make a fell the first one or indeed the only one on a walk, although this one does offer limited options if you want to stick to the paths. The nearest you get to this is to walk up from Hartsop and miss out The Knott which is tantalisingly close.
