There are over 60 walking guides for the area.  These are available from local visitor centres, walking shops and other local outlets.

Each publication has a brief description of the contents.

When you have added what you want to purchase into the basket, postage will be added based on weight. The locally produced walking leaflets and booklets are all under £2 so because of a minimum postal charge it will be much more economic for you if you make a minimum purchase of 3 or 4 of them.

They usually suggest getting the bus to the start and then walking back to where you started or a train station or a bus stop to get back to the start. Each booklet contains 6 varied walks (with a link to 6 more on the internet) with good directions, a map, some highlights to watch out for and information about buses.
