North Cheviot Walking Week

This summer is the perfect time to see the beauty of Northumberland National Park with the North Cheviot Walking Week. From 13th to 19th August we are running seven consecutive days of guided walks showcasing one of the best areas of Northumberland National Park.

The week begins with Yeavering Bell and Whitelaw. You’ll be able to follow a section of St Cuthberts Way to the summit of the largest Iron Age hill fort in the region retracing 4000 years of history.

On the 14th August try A Circuit of the Harthope. The contrast of low-level burns and high hills give the Harthope Valley drama and wildness. This circuit will take you above the Valley to the east of The Cheviot and Hedgehope.

The 15th August sees us take on The Schil via Red Cribs. This spectacular walk climbs the Schill and follows the Pennine Way along the Border Ridge, taking in splendid views into Scotland to the north and west.

On the 16th August you can enjoy a lovely walk which follows the Carey Burn to Broadstruther and return via the “Hell Path”. While on the 17th, you can try a new approach to the windy heights on the top of incredible Hedgehope.
