walk notes

Shepherds Walks has again teamed up with the National Trust to put on the third 13 mile Cragside Challenge walk/ run.


After meeting the guide he will guide the group around the 13 mile route of the Cragside Challenge Walk.


Starting at Cragside (free entry included in entry fee), the former home of Lord Armstrong this 13 mile walk will pass through this superb National Trust estate before following the River Coquet to Rothbury. From here the route rises up past Lordenshaws Iron Age Hillfort (Checkpoint 1) to Dove Crag, the highpoint of the walk.


The route then drops down passing Tosson Lime Kiln (Checkpoint 2) to the small village of Thropton, before crossing the River Coquet.


The route the rises up to the Cragside Carriageway drive which is the picturesque landscape to the north of Rothbury. You will then drop down to the stunning finish on the banks of Tumbleton Lake.


The route is good under foot. 


As you are guided around the route you will pass through checkpoints and snacks and drinks will be available on route.


Event t-shirts will be given to all participants.


Please do book early to avoid disappointment.
