archaelogy walk st gregory's hill LC

A short(ish) walk which follows the College Burn upstream from Kirknewton to the lovely waterfall at Hethpool Linn. From here we cross the burn and join St Cuthbert’s Way which we will follow for just over a mile before diverting to the top of historic St Gregory’s Hill. Hear about the history of the hillfort people in this area before descending down the hill back into Kirknewton.
