320 Raven Stones

"Interesting situations" is how rock climbers describe places that for most people would be terrifying. But at Raven Stones, high on the edge above Dovestone Reservoir, you can have all the fun of airy, rocky viewpoints from the safety of the footpath. True it's no stroll in the park, the paths are not always obvious and the scramble down is a bit steep, but come on, have an adventure - it's a great walk.
