The Kirkstone pass has the highest altitude of 1, 489 feet in the Lake District and is the highest pass that’s open to traffic.
It’s a steep, narrow and winding road that directly goes through the valley to connect Ambleside in Rothay to Patterdale in Ullswater.
The views from the top are breathtaking and encompass the whole valley. Close to the summit is an inn which is the third highest public house in England.
