Please note that most of the National Looped Walks presented here are not dog friendly.

Many of these walks are developed by local communities in conjunction with local landowners who have given walkers permissive access to enter private and often agricultural land.

It is at the discretion of the local landowner as to whether they give permission for walkers to take dogs onto their land.
