Walna Scar is the highest of Wainwright's The Outlying Fells of Lakeland. He describes an ascent from Coniston, continuing past the main summit to a second summit at White Maiden before returning to the south.
Geologically, Walna Scar contains a rich seam of distinctively striped slate which was quarried until the early 20th century. This was widely used for flooring in the North of England. The quarry can still be seen today on the slopes overlooking the Duddon Valley.
