Easiest Lakeland fell?? Advice needed please...

Date walked: 24/04/2019

Hi,

I'm looking for the simplest walk to a Lakeland view. It doesn't have to be a Wainwright summit, or even a summit at all...

My father has fell-walked extensively in the Lake District and across Wales for most of his life, and further afield since retirement, completing the Pyrenees coast-to-coast aged 63 and a trek to Everest basecamp aged 67! But now, aged 86 and with health slowly deteriorating, he's no longer able to complete any kind of climb, or indeed descent. He is however still able to walk 5 or 6 km on fairly level or gently sloping ground.

I'm hoping someone will be able to suggest an easy, fairly short walk, from where he'll be able to enjoy a spectacular view of the fells he loves. Any ideas welcomed.

Thanks in advance...
