Need another clue? The coast-to-coast route goes over this hill. I'm practically giving it away :roll:

That's right. Lank Rigg and Seatallan can be seen in the distance.

Over to you.

Thanks!

Where is this?... (top of the fell not visible - just overall location will do)

Sorry, been busy and not checked for a couple of days.

Sorry not there

PS I should give a couple of Clues

The view is from a very popular footpath, on a walk to some very popular summits

A famous Lake District pub is not far from where this photo was taken

Expect to be wholly wrong, but is that White Ghyll crag to the upper right? If it is you are above Dungeon Ghyll.

Thanks, many fond memories of "The Ghyll".
