Brant Fell is a hill in Westmorland, accounted by Wainwright as one of the outlying fells of the Lake District. It stands near Bowness-on-Windermere, overlooking Windermere. Its summit stands at just 629 feet above sea level.

The fell is the subject of a chapter of Wainwright's book The Outlying Fells of Lakeland.[1] Wainwright's route is an anticlockwise circuit which leaves Bowness along the path of the Dales Way. He commends its "fine prospect of Windermere".
