See attached pic.  I can't say I've got the building exactly right (try Google Earth).  You can't miss it if you're following the tramway.

As above if you mean that one. 

There is another one just to the left off the word PATH on the map on previous post.

The one you refer to there is Dubs Hut bothy - owned and managed by the nearby Honister Slate Mine. It's regularly used by a couple of clubs too.

Warnscale Bothy is just as much as GT has described above. This is the scenic, cosy and rustic bothy of the two in the area. It's small though and realistically only sleeps 4 at most.

The chimney suffers from leakage if you have a fire going, too - the smoke often blowing back in thanks to draughts - despite some repairs by the MBA in recent months.

I think possibly this is the one your after. At Dubs Quarry at the end of the dismantled tramway.

Nope, that's Dubs Hut. Warnscale Head is just off the Warnscale Beck path

Hiya Screaming Tree,  I know, so where's the Warnscale Head Bothy. I seem to remember a building/hut thing on the path going down to Buttermere at NY20465 13260 you can see it marked on the os map and Google Earth.

It's not marked on the map. As Graham & Terry say it's where it says 'path' on the map above. You can clearly see the bothy from the summit of Fleetwith Pike as it's roof stands out against the rock

Equally the path is quite clear to it. I think it is shown on the map above by a small square, to the left (west_ of the word 'path' with what appears to be a path leading to it as well. You can see it on google earth as well.

 Thinking about going in here soon.  Everyone seems to have a different location for it and so what is the actual grid ref?

I think this the one you are looking for...

When I get home I can get my OS map out and give a near as damn it grid ref.

It's pretty easy to spot on google maps too once you know the approximate grid ref.
