Nine Standards Rigg


A full day guided walk a part of a small group to explore the countryside, hills and moorland to the east of Kirkby Stephen. This will include a visit the famous Nine Standards Rigg near to the summit of Hartley Fell (662m above sea level).

Nine Standards Rigg takes its name from the line of huge cairns that stand on the edge of the escarpment. The origin of these 'stone men' is a complete mystery.

The walk is about 10 miles/16km with approx 620 metres of ascent. The route we'll be taking passes over some really wild and rough moorland that is pathless in places. It could be wet and boggy if there has been much rain. Proper hiking boots are essential and outdoor clothing.

Advance booking and payment required via the web link please.
