We drove over the tops past Buttertubs between our holiday home and Hawes. It's a scenic route. We stopped twice to look a Buttertubs, once in pouring rain (so I looked from the car), and once in strong wind. We didn't stop long but it...More

Don't let someone who is scared of heights drive! That is all. Great drive over the top of the Moors but very sudden drops on the side of the road in places. The 'Buttertubs' themselves are holes in the limestone that local farmers used to...More

We decided to visit Muker and the Buttertubs Pass was on our route. The scenery is wild moorland and the road is typical of the area with ups and downs and fairly narrow. The Buttertubs themselves were worth spending a little while to marvel at...More

The Buttertubs are a couple of potholes beside the road, well worth stopping to peer into. When we went it was cloudy and damp and the polished stone is slippery when wet. I did mangage to slip but only wounded my dignity. Nice drive to...More
