The Howgills is an attractive area just off the main tourist routes, where it is possible to walk for miles without meeting other people at all. Wainwright, the well known writer of mountain guide books, described the region as "the forgotten hills". All the planned excursions promise an enjoyable day's walking with the attraction of tea shops in Sedburgh to complete the outings. We look forward to your joining us on this trip.
