My second walk of the Otley Walking Festival. I chose a long walk for today out of the extensive itinerary.

We caught the 8am bus from Otley to Weeton (only about 15mins), and then set off up Almscliffe Crag for our first ascent of the day. An easy climb with great views of Wharefdale from the top. We then walked pretty much downhill through open countryside crossing several stiles along the way all the way to Pool.
