All these walks are graded as harder/challenging.  They are 6 or more miles in length and last 3+ hours so bring a packed lunch.  The walks cross rough ground which is sometimes muddy so walking boots are needed.  The walks will include inclines (some steep), often go over stiles and require a good level of fitness.

As many of the routes go over land containing sheep or other livestock, dogs are not allowed on the walks.
