The views are breathtaking and with you most of the way. You start by walking up a fairly steep tractor path into an even steeper uphill path in the woods... not for the faint hearted but with slow initial pace anyone can do it ......More

It's a long slog to get to the top, and a bit of a hairy descent if you want to come down the short way, but doing the Skirrid will make you feel quietly pleased with yourself. Just don't mention your feat to a local,...More

A varied walk through fields, wooded areas and then the open hillside which gave splendid views as far away as the Bristol Channel. A great walk for all ages, we were between 65 & 79
