WARNING: When I originally started writing up these walks, I didn't really intend them to be used as 'route descriptions' for other people to follow. However I am aware that a few people are using them that way - so I should point out that I don't always give enough details in the written descriptions for them to be used that way. Also, unfortunately, I have a dreadful tendency to get 'left' and 'right' confused. So if you want to try any of these walks yourself, I very strongly recommend that you try to follow the route on a map first.  The Google Map I provide with each walk may be of some help with navigation. If you do find (or think you find) any mistakes please let me know by email  and I will make any corrections as soon as I can (usually I check emails every day).

The distances and times given are usually only very rough estimates!
