walk summary

This superb circular walk passes through some fantastic scenery, which will take your breath away and it makes you realise the strategic importance of the Whin Sill that this section of the Roman Wall is built on, with the peaceful Crag Lough shimmering down below it.

The walk is good under foot and follows the wall for the first half and then returns via a lower route looking back towards the great wall. You get a real feel of what an impressive structure it would have been.

If you only do one walk along Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland this should be it.

P A wrote, ‘Thanks Jon for a great day out. We have just returned after walking Walk 13, which explored a wonderful section of Hadrian’s Wall. It was fascinating firstly to walk the line of the wall and then whilst undertaking the return leg on the old Scottish side it made you realise what a stronghold it would have been as you looked back to it. We bought a full set of walks from you last year and have had a great few months trying to undertake one of your walks every month’.

Loved the walk, plenty of ups and downs, but a truly spectacular section of Hadrians Wall.
