A Circuit Of The Skirrid – A 5 Mile Mini Mountain Day

This walk is 5 miles and is a complete exploration of this great little hill. This is an easy to moderate hill day and should be available to most levels of ability.

This is what Countryfile have to say about The Skirrid:

‘Holy Mountain, Sacred Hill, Ysgyryd Fawr in Welsh – ‘ysgyryd’ meaning shattered or split – or simply The Skirrid, this mini mount goes by many names, hinting at its extensive and intriguing past.

The land surrounding the hill has long been considered holy and fertile – according to one ancient legend, a powerful landslide hit it the moment Christ was crucified on the cross – and religious pilgrimages have been made to the summit for centuries. Enjoy a circular walk to the summit of this spooky hill, which offers dramatic views across the surrounding countryside with the Blorenge hill in the distance.’
