The Dales Way

Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windermere

The Dales Way is a 79 mile (127km) long distance trail in the north of England, running between Ilkley, in North Yorkshire and Bowness-on-Windermere, in Cumbria. Much of the route passes through the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. Starting out in Ilkley, the route runs along Wharfedale, passing the impressive ruins of Bolton Priory and the attractive market town of Grassington. It continues along the River Wharfe through dramatic limestone scenery before it crosses The Pennines to reach Dentdale and Sedbergh. It then skirts the Howgill Fells and crosses the M6 motorway to finish overlooking Lake Windermere.

This map-guide is laid out for walkers travelling from Ilkley to Bowness, although walkers travelling in the opposite direction should find it equally useful. Each panel includes a detailed route map, route profile and helpful notes on navigation.

There are link routes from Bradford, Leeds and Harrogate to the start of the route at Ilkley.

Discover the Isles of Islay & Jura

Including Colonsay and Oronsay

Price: £7.95

A visitors map of two spectacularly different islands. Islay, known as the Queen of the Hebrides, is populous, fertile and hilly. Famed for the numerous whisky distilleries, the island also boasts beautiful beaches and coves, picturesque villages, numerous ancient ruins and a wide variety of wildlife.

Separated by only a narrow channel, the island of Jura could not be a greater contrast. A single, narrow road linking the small settlements runs past stunning mountain scenery - wild, rocky and remote, this is un-tamed Scotland at it's very best.

Discover the Orkney Islands

Price: £7.95

A group of islands close to the north coast of Scotland, Orkney has a visible history spanning more than 5500 years. From the world’s best preserved Neolithic settlement at Skara Brae, through numerous Bronze Age stone circles and burial mounds, Iron Age brochs, Medieval churches and cathedrals, to the remains from more recent events during two World Wars, there is almost too much to see.

The scenery is outstanding. A wild coastline (the Old Man of Hoy is one one islands most iconic images) is backed by a surprisingly rich and fertile countryside. From Mainland (the largest and most populated island) ferries run regular services to a further twelve islands (and three more can be reached by causeway). Wildlife is abundant, particularly sea birds and mammals such as seals, dolphins and whales. Most of the islands are low lying with good road networks, making exploring by car, bicycle or foot easy.
