But you only did a bit of it; from Malham Tarn you should continue above Cowside Beck to Arncliffe (great pub :D ) - and fabulous Brirds eye Primroses on the descent: continue down the river to Arncliffe cote farm and then return over Low and High Lineseed heads to the top of Gordale Scar and descend it.. That's a really good day's walk :D

A short diversion over Great Close Hill is also worthwhile if in the area.

I find it quite staggering that the map makers decided to omit naming Malham Cove and Janet's Foss :D
