Whitbarrow is a hill in Cumbria, England. Designated a biological Site of Special Scientific Interest and National Nature Reserve, it forms part of the Morecambe Bay Pavements Special Area of Conservation due to its supporting some of the best European examples of natural limestone habitats. Also known as Whitbarrow Scar (though properly that term applies to the cliffs lining its western edge), the hill lies about 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) south-west of Kendal, just north of the A590 road, close to the village of Witherslack. Part of the site is a Local Nature Reserve called Whitbarrow Scar.
