Join us for our guided walk to Windy Gyle & Davidson’s Linn

One of the views on the Clennell Trail Run


Turning west we ascend the Border Ridge which we then follow to the top of Windy Gyle. After turning our back on the wonderful views into Scotland, we descend to Scotsman’s Ford and follow a lovely path over Trows Law which descends to the Rowhope Burn.

Discover the best routes in the Northumberland National Park on our  Guided Walks. Get outside, enjoy your time walking and leave the planning and navigation to us; it’s what we’re best at.

Nobody knows the best places to walk in the National Park like our volunteers so you’ll never be short of local history, stories, features and viewpoints.

Numbers are limited so it is essential to book; please do not just turn up on the day.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks. Whilst well behaved dogs are welcome, please take note of any specific instructions by the walk leader and the concerns of others.

Lace up your boots and enjoy a great time outside.
