Shutlingsloe is a hill inbetween the village of Langley and Wildboarclough, close to Macclesfield, in the east of the county of Cheshire. It stands to the south of Macclesfield Forest, on the edge of the Peak District and within the Peak District National Park.

Shuttlingsloe is about a 2 mile walk from standing stone car park at the top of Macclesfield forest and is an easy climb for walkers of most abilities. There is a few steep climbs with steps and a stile which sits atop a 6ft wall.

The area is open countryside but dogs are to be kept on short leads in specific areas due to nesting birds.

The view from the top across cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire is quite amazing and on a clear day you can see Ellesmere port, Liverpool, Manchester and even the Welsh mountains.

This hill is sometimes called the Cheshire Matterhorn and rises to 506m above sea level and about a 300m climb from the surrounding Macclesfield forest.
