Had set out to go between peaks from Horton in Ribblesdale -but climate and achievement stopped it at one. I have never seen as many rainbows as on that Friday before August Bank Holiday. Great views of Penyghent and Whernside and the immediate landscape. At...More

Really stunning and the walk is ideal for anyone who is able, it is not arduous. Lovely lake on the right after a short walk along the path just down so a good view. Worth the visit.

Great climb to this big lump, clear path from the main road, Some scrambling for 1/3 of a mile, which is tougher on the way down. Great views all the way up.

Walked this lovely lump from Ingleton on our last day in the area. Just under three miles each way with Ingleborough in sight for most of the walk along clear tracks. Interesting scramble on the last bit of the walk.

Walked from Ingleton, up the hill and back down to Clapham and back to Ingleton. Good paths and great views.

One of my outright Favourite Mountains. It creeps up on you with a steady 4 mile walk from Horton-in-Ribblesdale easing you into the climb but the views from the top on a clear day are spectacular. Much preferred to the larger of the 3 peaks...More

Really good walk but a bit sad. The entrance to Ingleborough caves well we landed here and didn’t want to go in the caves just wanted to carry on the walk. A lady needed the toilet but wasn’t allowed because she hadn’t been on the...More
