Swaledale’s Heather Hills

Swathes of purple heather carpet the moors & high fells above Upper Swaledale

‘The purple headed mountain’

‘The river running by’

There are miles of public footpaths to enjoy in Upper Swaledale.  Some snake over the high tops & through the heather moors but there are plenty of easier paths to explore that are less challenging.  We have maps & suggested walks at  Pry House Farm B&B, Hillcrest Cottage and in the Shepherd’s Hut.  The Keld Resource Centre organise several guided walks throughout the summer.  For details visithttp://www.keld.org.uk
