The 'themes' assigned to guided walks and tours organised by the Friends of the Settle-Carlisle Line (FoSCL) have the following meanings:
- FULL DAY walks are for experienced walkers and may be strenuous. They will have a 30 minute lunch break and two shorter refreshment breaks.
- EXPLORER walks are generally shorter walks and may have a later start or earlier finish time but will have a 30 minute lunch break and at least one shorter refreshment break.
- RAILWAY themed walks have a specific railway feature to explore.
- WONDER & WANDER walks are generally shorter walks with an added attraction like the Kirkby Stephen Classic Vehicle Rally.
