Lying on the northern border of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is Swaledale, whose out­standing scenery and secluded grandeur make it one of the most picturesque landscapes in England.

Swaledale embraces all the finest characteristics of the Dales flaunting them with immense pride and serenity. It is surrounded by some of the highest mountains of the Pennines; Lovely Seat, Great Shunner Fell, Nine Standards Rigg and High Seat, all towering to well over 2000 feet (630m).

Swaledale has many tributary valleys, the largest of them being Arkengarthdale, which is often thought of as a separate dale. Arkengarthdale is a broad, remote valley which leaves Swaledale at Reeth and climbs north-west to the famous Tan Hill Inn. Great Britain's highest inn, standing at 1732 feet (528m) above sea level. Swaledale has a network of over 280 miles (450km) of public rights of way and both the 'Pennine Way' and the 'Coast-to-Coast Walk' pass through this beautiful dale. It has many attractive villages which provide excellent starting points for a variety of walks from easy riverside rambles to strenuous fell walks.

Each walk has a two page description, a colour map with numbered arrow pointers and route directions with grid references to aid map reading. All of the walks follow circular routes ranging from 5.5 to 9 miles (9 to 14.5km).
