Nine Standards Rigg

Nine Standards Rigg


A full day guided walk from Kirkby Stephen, up the hillside and onto a beautiful, high area of moorland. 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 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.

It is essential that you wear proper hiking boots and outdoor clothing, and bring a waterproof jacket and trousers. A full list of what to bring will be provided upon booking.

Advance booking and payment via the web link is required.
