On a clear day, you can see as far as the Lake District and even, some claim, Edinburgh.
The Cheviot is the highest point in the Northumberland National Park at 815 metres.
Keep to the path, as bogs abound.

The millstone slabbed pathway on the summit is part of the long-distance route known as the
Pennine Way, on its last few miles.
North of the summit, in the peat bogs, are the remains of a crashed B-17 bomber, which hit the mountain due to a navigational error during the Second World War.
The more recognisable pieces of wreckage have been removed, but pieces of the aircraft can still be found.

Car: The Cheviot can be reached by vehicle using the A697, from the A1.
The Cheviot is the last peak on the Pennine Way walking route.
Walkers on the Pennine Way, through the Cheviot Hills, are able to keep their feet dry thanks to a major work programme to be undertaken by National Park rangers last year, which involved paving large swathes of the route.
