The Herriot Way is a 52 mile (84 km) long distance path that runs through some of the best scenery in the Yorkshire Dales including Wensleydale and stunning Swaledale.
This circular four day walk uses Aysgarth, Grinton, Hawes and Keld as stopping points. The walk is named after James Herriot, the fictional vet who lived and worked in the Dales. The book James Herriot’s Yorkshire describes parts of this walk and also features the track up to Frith Lodge on its inside cover!
This walk is either a fabulous introduction to walking in the Dales, a first long distance walk or some walkers use it as a ‘warm up’ to the Coast to Coast. Whatever your reason you will experience some of the most amazing Dales scenery. Stuart Greig has written a great guide to the Herriot Way available from herriotway.com
