Starling Dodd is always windy from what I can tell. I guess the wind funnels over and around it, is it is less bulky that it's neighbouring heights. A summit nearby is named Gale Fell, which adds to the theory of perpetual wind here ;)

Last time I climbed it I get blew over quite a few times, and had to pretty much crawl off the summit :D
