There is little doubt that the Crag Hill trig point is one of the finest viewpoints in the north-west Yorkshire Dales. The view of the Howgill Fells is quite magnificent whilst the steep flanks of Calf Top on the other side of Barbondale also catches the eye. On a clear day the Irish Sea and the Lakeland Fells can also be seen.
