Despite the modest height, Hill of Fare covers a sizeable area and this is our third short walk onto the moor, each walk having been from a different starting point.
Followed the WH route with one small variation, keeping left on what looks like the main track at the start. Apart from that a very straight forward walk on a good track but varied and enjoyable.

This day was my husband's birthday where we had a nice drink in the hotel. A very posh hotel. A good walk we slightly took the wrong path but found the wrong path was delightful! The trees have many faces on them on the golf course. Great views and would recommend to anyone who loves trees as we do.
