walk notes

The Cheviot is the highest point in Northumberland (2,676 feet, 816 metres), so is therefore a must for anybody who walks in the area.

We are doing a slightly different route of the Cheviot that will make it one of the classic walks in Northumberland.

After a short transfer from Hethpool to Mounthooly you will be guided up through the Hen Hole, which is one of the most striking routes up to Cairn Hill.

From here you will be guided to the summit of The Cheviot before returning to Auchope Cairn and then to the Mountain Refuge Hut that sits high above the College Valley.

After a short break the walk will follow the border ridge taking in The Schil before following the Fleehope burn back to the valley bottom to Mounthooley. From here you will be transported back to Hethpool.

The walk is a little boggy under foot in places so good footwear is essential and as you are climbing up to nearly 2700 feet warm clothes, waterproofs and emergency rations are essential. Treat it with respect and experienced walkers only.

If you only do a small number of walks in Northumberland this has to be on your list.
