walk notes

This is my all time favourite walk in Northumberland. I never get tired of walking Windy Gyle. Apart from the Cheviot itself it must be one of the most known summits in Northumberland but luckily its relative isolation seems to keep a lot of people away.

This wonderful route follows ‘The Street’, an old drovers road to the border fence between England and Scotland. You follow the border fence, then cross over into Scotland to reach the summit of Windy Gyle. You keep your height here for a while following the Pennine Way and the border fence. You descend down ‘Clennell Street’, another drover’s road that has been worn away over many centuries.

If you only do one walk in Northumberland this is it.
