The Howgills are overlooked by many walkers heading for the northwest of England. Just outside the Lake District and only half in the Yorkshire Dales, they attract few of the crowds that flock to these places, and are all the better for it.
The best way to enjoy these lonely hills is to lose yourself in them for a two day hike. There are plenty of places to wild camp, and there is little apart from sheep to disturb you.
