Terrain Description

Steep sided and rugged moorland with many areas of sink holes. No walls and very few paths.

The areas rises to 600m. You must come equipped for all weathers, and be prepared to carry full wateproofs, hat and gloves. Hopefully the sun will shine, but we have known some very bad weather here at this time of year.

Dog restrictions

Sheep country. Dogs must be on a tight lead at all times and not on courses please.
