Well from looking at the endpaper map and the slightly larger scale "Eskimo settlements" map/illustration, we can see the observatory is to the south of the tarn. So really the head of the lake and the tarn are more-or-less in the same direction. So it really depends which hills he's looking at. Imagining this observatory and tarn is on the east shore of Windermere, somewhere south of Bowness, then you might look (a little) right towards Wansfell and High Street, etc. and left towards Loughrigg or the Langdales. If we're only talking about a slight move left or right, I do feel it could be either without the maps being hugely inaccurate. We're also assuming the lake is as directly North/South aligned as it appears on the endpaper maps.
