Linskeldfield Tarn is situated on the low hills to the north-west of Cumbria. A wide, shallow lake it is now a nature reserve. Because of this, access is limited. There are viewing hides on the north shore, next to Linskeldfield Farm, but these offer little view of the lake. The best view I've found so far is from the road to the south.
