We did the circular walk around Scar House and Angram reservoirs. Lovely walk, takes around 4 hours with a stop for lunch. Bit damp under foot in places, especially at the top end of Angram. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

A scenic drive to a scenic reservoir, a good walk to be had around the edge of around 4 miles. There is a cafe but only open weekends. A very quite area.

Two friends and I had a couple of days fishing on this reservoir, it is surrounded by some of the best scenery in Yorkshire,pity the fishing wasn't as good. There is a small cafe and clean toilets on site.

We had a lovely drive up to the reservoir this afternoon. The walk around is very pleasant and the scenery is beautiful. There is a car park and sometimes a café that is open.

Only the car park side is pram friendly but still worth doing, probably about 1.5 miles each way on that side alone.
