The “land of far horizons” is never more apparent than on this walk.

This is a superb and fairly level medium length walk in Northumberland National Park and gives you a real sense of isolation.

Enjoy spectacular views of the Cheviot, Northumberland’s highest peak, the deserted farmhouse of Broadstruther, with its eerie silence, and low lying hills to the remote but lived in farm of Commonburn House.

This fascinating quiet walk is a striking contrast to the more popular walks in Northumberland.

The route is good underfoot, but strong shoes and waterproof clothing are essential.

Just a quick note we bought your walking guides of the borders. We stayed in Wooler over Easter and have done four of the walks we both really enjoyed all of the walks we have done so far and its just so nice to have a step by step guide as you walk along. Keep up the good work we will be back in August for a few more walks 10/10 thanks
