Settle Loop - Winskill Stones and Catrigg Force

Catrigg Force is a well-hidden spectacular waterfall in the Yorkshire Dales. There are two routes to reach it – a walk from nearby village Stainforth, or you can walk from Settle although it’s a little bit further and neither route is very well signposted until you’re already upon the waterfall.

We walked the path from Settle which takes you through the little picturesque village of Langcliffe and past Winskill Stones – a 74-acre nature reserve known for its limestone pavement. The path up from Langcliffe is quite steep and it was so windy at this point but the views make up for it once you reach the top.

Because of its secluded setting, there was nobody else at Catrigg Force when we arrived, so I was able to climb out over the rocks to get a better view. Set in a secluded little woodland, Catrigg was one of my favourites from the trip.
