GREAT COUM, Route 20, July 2009 This was a per­fect rain­bow across the valley (I couldn't get to the gold!) on the way up Great Coum, Cum­bria. It was a very hard walk up­hill across bogs and moor­land but the views from the top stretched to the sea at More­cambe Bay and the Lake District. it was an even harder walk down­hill but it was still su­perb all round. Lor­rie For­man, Mel­ton Mow­bray

ARISAIG & CAMUSDARACH, Route 26, July 2017 We had an amaz­ing week up in The High­lands. On this route there was plenty of beach walk­ing and clam­ber­ing over

rocks to make up for the road stretches. We could have sat for hours watch­ing kites fly­ing, kids swim­ming and dogs run­ning. Sa­man­tha & Dar­ren Ham­bling, Es­sex

ALDERLEY EDGE, Route 15, Oc­to­ber 2016 We were look­ing for some­where to walk to break up our jour­ney home from Knutsford. I set­tled on this walk be­cause I visit the town reg­u­larly as the com­pany I work for owns a ho­tel there, and it never struck me as a walk­ing lo­ca­tion. We vis­ited some old mine work­ings, the Ar­mada Bea­con and most im­por­tantly ‘The Edge’, which was to­tally un­known to me un­til this walk. Colin & Dawn Wallace, Dar­wen

DUFTON PIKE & HIGH CUP NICK, Route 18, July 2015 Our walk­ing group fi­nally ar­ranged a week­end away in Ap­pleby to tackle High Cup Nick. The pic­ture shows them star­ing in awe at the enor­mity of this glacially-cre­ated nat­u­ral

won­der. The weather was a mix of tor­ren­tial rain and sun­shine but it was a small price to pay to see and walk round this amaz­ing spec­ta­cle. Richard Bott, Email

HIGH FORCE & CAUL­DRON SNOUT, Route 21, Au­gust 2016 So glad we did this walk. High Force was

so im­pres­sive! We were just start­ing to flag at about 12.5 miles, hav­ing not seen a soul or hardly even a dwelling for the past 2 hours, when the sight of Caul­dron Snout as we rounded the bend both re­vived me and took my breath away at the same time. The climb up the side of the wa­ter­fall was a bit hairy and the exit past the dam and reser­voir back to car was a trudge, but steak pie & chips at The High Force Ho­tel re­vived us for the drive back. Si­mon Tay­lor, Lytham St Annes

SOUTH ZEAL & COSDON BEA­CON, Route 27, June 2017 I fan­cied see­ing the triple stone row, I was so keen I did the route in re­verse and re­gret­ted the steeper climb up to the bea­con. It made the pint in The Ox­en­ham Arms much sweeter though. Dave Thoburn, Ex­mouth
