Leave Hartside on the road up the valley. Pass a wood on your right, with rhododendrons flowering in the spring, before the road descends to Linhope. Views towards Cunyan Crags & Dunmoor Hill to the right & ahead to Shill Moor.
Cross the bridge over the Linhope Burn and follow the road around to the left, passing a house on the corner. Bear right, following the fingerposts. Follow the clear stone track along the side of the plantation.
Upon reaching the corner of the plantation, a fingerpost guides you off the stone track and onto a clear grassy track. Follow this alongside the plantation to the wicket gate. Once through the gate continue straight ahead along the well-worn grassy path and down the hill to the Linhope Burn and Linhope Spout.
At the wicket gate on a clear day you will get views towards Great Standrop and Hedgehope Hill. Also, look out for Scots Pine cones which have been nibbled by red squirrels while walking past the plantation!
Return by the same route.
