4.9/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Kinder Scout is a moorland plateau and National Nature Reserve in the Dark Peak of the Derbyshire Peak District in England. Part of the moor, at 636m above sea level, is the highest point in the Peak District, the highest point in Derbyshire, and the highest point in the East Midlands. In excellent weather conditions the city of Manchester and the Greater Manchester conurbation can be seen, as well as Winter Hill near Bolton, and the mountains of Snowdonia in North Wales.To the north across the Snake Pass lie the high moors of Bleaklow and Black Hill, which are of similar elevation.Kinder Scout featured on the 2005 BBC TV programme Seven Natural Wonders as one of the wonders of the Midlands, though Kinder Scout is considered by many to be in Northern England, lying between the cities of Manchester and Sheffield.

  • I went with 5 other family members, age ranging 12 to 50 and we all found it relaxing, not difficult, and enjoyable. There were no steep climbs and the views at the top was great. Will come again.
