The Peak District doesn’t have the high mountains of the Lakes and Snowdonia, but it does have some hidden gems. Alport Castles is one of my favourites. The remains of a landslip, it’s a wonderfully quiet and strange place of rocky cliffs and towers. A great walk from Ladybower Reservoir.

A nice walk from Fairholmes visitor centre, Alport Castles is one of the most recognisable parts of the Peak District. Apparently it's one of the largest landslides in the UK at over half a mile long. The Tower in the centre of the slip is a Grade 1 scramble.
