Wetherlam lies north of Coniston village, among the Furness Fells. It's a fine hill, easily the match of its better known neighbour, the Old Man. The best ascent is via Levers Water, which takes you to the saddle between Wetherlam and Swirl How. You can return to Consiton, but for a full day's walk, head north via Wetherlam edge to Little Langdale Tarn and Skelwith Bridge. Both villages have regular bus connections with Ambleside.
