walk notes

This Nordic Walk takes us into the foothills of the Cheviot Hills.

It starts off with a steep climb that rewards you with a fantastic view of the valley, with the river Coquet winding its way along the valley floor. Then you drop down from this viewpoint and follow the Usway burn as it winds its way through a gorgeous deserted, and yet undiscovered, valley as you slowly gain height.

You are then truly in the heart of The Cheviots and the sense of isolation is quite unique.

As you return via a higher route there are some lovely views away to the west. The track itself, Clennell Street, is an old droverís road, used in the past to drive livestock from the Scottish hills to the English markets.
