Walk of the Month: Settle and Attermire Scar

We like to help you explore the area whilst you’re staying with us. For those of you that can get out on foot, we hope our monthly walks help give you a little inspiration whether you visit us weekly, monthly or just once a year.

For March we are recommending a strenuous walk for the more seasoned hikers amongst you, a long steep start will be rewarded with incredible views (weather dependant!) across Settle and beyond, and a stop at Victoria Cave, which was discovered by chance in 1837, and has become an important historical site.  You can also take a short detour and check out Jubilee Cave.


Where to wander this month:  Settle, Victoria Cave & Attermire Scar. 

This sometimes strenuous circular route includes both a low level section through valleys and a high level route through fellsides.

The details:

Distance:  4 miles

Approx. Time: a minimum of 1.5 hours

Terrain: Lanes and fields, long steep climb to start, parts of the route are rocky and can get slippy & muddy, multiple gates.

Important info:

A section of the route goes through farmland where, depending on the time of year, there may be cattle or livestock. Please make sure to follow the countryside code.

The route:

It will take you around 20 minutes to drive to the start of this walk from our park. Parking is available in multiple places in Settle, we would recommend Whitefriars car park  (BD24 9JD). There are public toilets and a petrol station in this car park, and in Settle there are many places to get refreshments pre or post walk.

Grab your walking boots and view the route here.

Walk maps for this walk and many others can be found in our park reception and you can view all of our other walk recommendations here.
