Visited the Stiperstones many times over the years and I never bored of the views of Long Mynd and over into the Welsh mountains. A landscape of heather and a rock strewn wilderness, topped by massive rock outcrops and formations, this is an amazing place to visit any time of year.

Just south of Shrewsbury, this is an areal of great unspoilt beauty, offering a variety of informed walks with rugged rock formation (The Stiperstones) and superb 360degree views and a variety of wild flowers. A small information centre and café close to the free carpark is open from 10.00am daily. The further landscape offers wonderful rural farming countryside and wild... More

What a healthy walk! What views, even on a cloudy day! What climbing challenges! Bring some refreshments and a First Aid Kit. If you walk to the top and further, the path becomes less grassy and more and more stoney. It is a managed landscape, lots of wild berries and sheep, but it does feel really wild. On a clear...

Whilst we were in the area we stumbled upon the Stiperstones and we were so grateful we did, not a difficult walk but one that was thoroughly enjoyed with some spectacular views and amazing sunset to add to the experience. There is even a perfectly formed pathway allowing easy wheelchair access and plenty of rest seat along the way.

We parked at the Bog Visitor Centre. From there we followed the trail up across the fields and onto the rock strewn path towards the rocky outcrops. The scenery was unspoilt and beautiful. It was peaceful and tranquil and we really enjoyed breathing in the fresh air.

I love this place. First went for my birthday with the dog and have returned again a few times. It's offers great views, without a hugely strenuous hike to the top.

Stiperstones are stunning and offer great views on a clear day. There is a nearby car park for those who only want a short stroll, but this may have contributed to the paths becoming so worn out. The ground has eroded away dramatically over the past 9 months and along the edge of the rocky outcrops, the path consists of... More

The Stiperstones, with it's long line of quarztsite tors is unique among British upland landscapes. There are walks to suit all levels of ability including a lower level track that allows for wheelchair access. To complete the traverse of the tors, including The Devil's Chair, the walker should have suitable boots as the route crosses areas of scree and is... More

This place is amazing! Breath taking landscape and convent facilities. There're 2 or 3 car parks so you can park your car very close to the stones-15min walk or you can leave it a bit further and have a longer, more challenging walk. Either way, it is so worth coming and seeing these great views. As I said, you can... More
