Haystacks is situated at the south-eastern end of the Buttermere Valley and is where the ashes of Alfred Wainwright were scattered near Innominate Tarn. Wainwright stated that “for beauty, variety and interesting detail, for sheer fascination and unique individuality, the summit area of Haystacks is supreme. This is in fact the best fell-top of all”.
