Easy Walks In And Around Skipton


Skipton is a vibrant market town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. As a walking centre it caters for all abilities and tastes. For the fit and keen, some of the UK's best waking country is within easy reach. But these walks can be demanding. Our intention here is to describe some more accessible walks.

Skipton is a nice place to be. There are many pubs, restaurants and shops. And best of all, for walkers, public transport is excellent. There are plenty of trains, buses and taxis. I like to get a bus out of town, then walk back in.


I have just a handful of walks for now. I hope to add more as the months pass.

(I have recently added a 'current location indicator' to my OS map pages. Regrettably, it is only as accurate as the geo-location service of the phone it's running on. And on my iPhone it is not always as accurate as I would like. So use with caution.)
