Cheshire’s third highest peak is a popular destination for weekend walkers, being within easy reach of the populations of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Manchester. Roger wrote that, No matter which way you look at Shutlingsloe it’s an unmistakable shape. 32 This is probably the best-known profile of Shutlingsloe, taken in the last rays of an October 1999 sunset. It shows a recognisable and appealing profile from certain angles, resulting in its alternative description of ‘the Matterhorn of Cheshire’, although its 1,660ft summit is a mere 13,030ft short of the Alpine original.
