Lovely walk to the top and awesome views on a clear day when you get there. Check the weather forecast before you go though as the mist can come in quickly

Magical place and well worth the climb to the summit for outstanding views. They encourage you to pick up after your dogs but there is no bun in the car park. Such a shame.

Wellies are recommended as it's boggy all the way up, but well worth it. Good size carpark at the bottom but no toilets. We thought we'd got to the top until the mist lifted and we realised we had only reached Little Roughtor - the...More
