My spouse and I drove up and over the Shropshire Hills from west to east on one-track roads among the heather and sheep. It was a fascinating, beautiful drive and one we would not have missed.

My 92 year old mother and I can here on holiday and really enjoyed our week so much to see and do. Some times the views and journey to attractions was almost as enjoyable as the many and varied places we visited

Coming from Hampshire, the Shropshire Hills were amazing! Wild variety of flora and fauna and views across many local counties - truly beautiful!

Fantastic spot to go walking. Clearly very popular. Lots of walks, varying in length and difficulty. Cafe, facilities, parking - all there. Well maintained routes but the 'difficult' ones require a degree of scrambling. Well worth a full day to explore.

Hills hills hills. A great place to go for a really good walk. Beautiful views. Spotted sheep and horses on the walk. Went on a cold rainy day and it was rather windy at the top but enjoyed it.
