Elf Kirk Viewpoint

Elf Kirk Viewpoint at Kielder Water


Due to the current icy conditions which makes access very dangerous and the current Government guidelines and with the area in tier 4, we have had to close the gates to the entrance of the viewpont.

Accessible by a short detour from the Lakeside Way or by car, the former quarry site of Elf Kirk provides one of the most iconic views of Kielder Water & Forest Park with a fine overlook of Merlin Brae, Whickhope Anchorage, Bull Crag and across to the Belling on the north shore. Deadwater Fell on the Scottish Border can also be seen on a clear day.
