The ground is uneven and boggy in places, with tussocky grass in others, and a couple of narrow streams, so a challenging walk, made worthwhile by the remote peatland beauty of Whitehorse Hill, by the prehistoric monuments we encounter en route, and if fine some stunning views across the North moors.
