Pots and Pans to Dovestones top (with a little scramble in between)

Public Transport based walk with Siobhán Burke.

This circular walk takes in the heights around Greenfield with spectacular views and scenary, weather permitting. A walk of two halves, the first takes us quickly and sharply up to the War memorial at Pots and Pans before heading to the views over Dovestones reservoir at Alderman's Hill. We head down into the reservoir via Binn Green before a long flat-ish stroll to the base of a waterfall. We'll walk or scramble up the waterfall before heading along the ridge and the view of the Trinnacle over Dovestones. We'll eventually descend back down into the reservoir before heading back into Greenfield.

The rocks will be wet and slippery and there is also a small stream to cross. You will also need to use your hands to climb over large boulders so may wish to bring gloves. Weather can also be cold and windy on the tops no matter what the weather forecasts, so bring appropriate clothing. Walking boots are essential.
