The Windy Hill trig point is sat back from the modest Ash Fell Edge between the A685 and the A683. It is best reached by taking a path from the A685, Ash Fell Road before following the wall all the way to the trig point. Unfortunately on my visit patches of low cloud were clinging to many of the higher summits but from what I could see the trig point would have good views of the Howgill Fells, Wild Boar Fell, Mallerstang, Nateby Common and Nine Standards Rigg.
