Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Baugh Fell (Tarn Rigg Hill)
Kevin Foster walked up on August 24th, 2017 [from/via/route] Swarth Fell [with] Henry [weather] Cloudy - First, I have to say the picture someone has supposedly taken of Tarn Rigg Hill the summit of Baugh Fell is incorrect and is in fact the trig point on Knoutberry Haw the next summit along the ridge. Tarn Rigg Hill has no cairn (and no trig point). Next, the route described in the Nuttall book is a direct A to B and traverses some very rough terrain in places. Holme Moss Hill is very unpleasant and my advice would be to try and avoid at all costs (even at the risk of a huge detour). The bog and peat hags just below Tarn Rigg Hill were also horrendous but hard to avoid when your objective lies just beyond them. On a positive note, the series of waterfalls as you climb beside Rawthey Gill and Swere Gill were breathtakingly beautiful. However, in summary I have to say that Baugh Fell is a massive fell and deserving of a full days walk in itself and doesn't need to be tagged on to the Wild Boar Fell walk for the sake of it. I think in future, I might split some of the Nuttall walks in order to make them more manageable (and dare I say enjoyable).

Trevor Williams hiked on January 21st, 2015 [with] Paul [weather] snow - Did not reach the top got to within 800m but time meant that we had to turn back. Will revisit another time.
Christine Shepherd summited on July 17th, 2014 [from/via/route] Walked from Rawthey Bridge using walk c382 [with] On my own [weather] Very hot and sunny - This was tough walk due to the narrow or non existent paths. Had to rely heavily on compass bearings. Not a walk to attempt in bad weather. On the plus side the views of the Howgills on the descent are wonderful and there are some very pretty waterfalls.
