Kirkstone Pass looking south
Kirkstone Pass with an altitude of 1,489 feet is the Lake District’s highest pass that is open to motor traffic. It connects Ambleside in the Rothay Valley to Patterdale in the Ullswater valley – the A592 road.
There is also a road locally called 'The Struggle' which comes up from Ambleside. It can be seen in the photo. No need to say anything more about it. It does what it says on the tin!
