Since we had limited time in Sheffield, my friend and I chose this route. Even in winter, there were a lot of other tourists, so it was quite safe. We took the 272 bus to Castleton which costs £5 each (return trip). It was cold...More

Access all round is great, especially through all the local farms with all the beautiful little lambs. Walking along the ridge the views can only be described as exhilarating! Most paths are reasonably good but there are a number of places that require attention. An...More

It's not that high and it's not that far, there's many routes to cater for any ability and those who've had breakfast and those that haven't. Go for it, what have you got to lose? Lots of cafes and pubs at the bottom, and I...More

You need proper footwear (I wouldn’t recommend trainers or sandals) Very tiring but worth the feeling of ‘yay I’ve walked Mam Tor’ when you reach the top but if your have a phobia of heights, it’s a no no!

Well marked and maintained route, with a moderately testing ascent up to the top of Mam Tor. Beautiful scenery all round - with the exception of the cement works!

As I recall there may be a couple of stiles further along the ridge towards Back Tor and Lose Hill, but the initial climb to Mam Tor and a fair bit of the ridge should be fine.

Yes. You can start in Castleton, walk up the Limestone Way (around the back of the castle); across to Mam Tor, along the ridge to Losehill, then back down to Castleton. There are lots and lots of variations. You could start... More
