This is the northernmost of steep eastern side can be found several small caves. There are also two artificial caves in the northern slopes, dug out in the 16th century to quarry stone, but have since been abandoned.

Nover's Hill in Shropshire is the highest point in the county at 479m. It's an excellent place for sunset and sunrise, and I've never seen so many perched boulders in my life. It's also a great place to take a walk or run with one of the best views I have ever seen while running. I could write a whole blog post on this one. The best view I have ever seen while running is from the top of Novers Hill, Sh Shropshire.

Heatherland Hill near the Scottish border is one of the main access points to Blaven. It's a steep, rugged climb to get up here, but worth it for the views from the top! And I haven't even mentioned Blaven yet...  The Clachaig Inn in Glencoe is one of my favourite places to stay when I'm in the area. The food is excellent, the beer is excellent, and it's got a great atmosphere. It's also a great place to eat out as it's usually packed with walkers and climbers.

Dove holes hils at Derbyshire is a great place to go for a walk. The views and walks are superb. If you like rock climbing, then you can visit the Dove Holes Caving Centre.  If you're into walking in the UK, there are lots to choose from, but if you're looking for something a little different, why not try the Walken Path, a walking route through one of the most important areas of ancient woodland? England. The Dove holes hills at Derbyshire are a great place to go for a walk. The Dove Holes hill is part of the Peak District National Park, and the views from the top are superb.
