Event date:
10th July 2022

An exhilarating climb up Cheviot from the remote location of Goldscleugh in the beautiful College Valley.

This tough walk will take in the summit of Cheviot (815m) before visiting the site of the Vickers Warwick crash site close to Auchope Cairn. We’ll follow the Pennine Way and drop down into the valley where we will be rewarded with fantastic scenery as we look up the Hen Hole through the myriad of waterfalls.

We shall return to Goldscleugh via Red Cribs and car left at Mounthooly.
