More about Hare Shaw: To the west and east the fell is bounded by Tebaygill Beck and Ellergill Beck respectively. To the south there is a low saddle which connects Hare Shaw to Blease Fell. To the north the fell descends in gentle stages over Knott and Weather Hill to the pastures between Tebay and Gaisgill.

To a certain extent Hare Shaw is hidden by nearby Blease Fell, Rispa Pike and Uldale Head all of which are of similar or greater altitude. The fell is perhaps best seen on the initial stage of the climb from Tebay to Blease Fell. For the first mile or so of the walk Blease Fell is hidden giving the illusion that Hare Shaw is quite separate from any neighbouring summits.

The top of Hare Shaw is notable for being one of the select number of Howgill summits to feature something resembling a cairn. While not as good a viewpoint as Blease Fell the summit still provides, in good weather, a fantastic vista of the Lakeland fells to the west.
