Ramble, Amble or Scramble!
Ramble – 22.5 miles This beautiful circular walk rambles over the rolling Shropshire hills from and back to Bishop’s Castle, via Offa’s Dyke, Shropshire Way, the Walcot Estate and Bury Ditches, with a welcome hot vegetarian lunch at Clun.
Scramble – 13 miles This hill walk leaves Bishop’s Castle, to climb up to Offa’s Dyke from Mainstone, enjoying views along the Cefns before dropping down past its castle to Clun, for lunch and transport back to Bishop’s Castle.
Amble – 9.5 miles Transport is provided from Bishops Castle to Clun for lunch, before an undulating stroll to Bury Ditches, then through the normally private Walcot Estate, and Oakeley Mynd, to Bishop’s Castle.
The route crosses quite remote countryside some of which is not normally open to the public. But don’t worry about getting lost! We provide clear signage, written instructions and helpful marshals.
