Traversing the Cheviots makes for an unjulating walk as you enjoy hilltop views and leave the Scottish Borders behind, journeying into England.

As well as crossing the border into England, today traverse the Cheviots which means negotiating some ups and downs as you travel east to Wooler. You will be walking atop the hills for much of the day and this means more great views. You will pass by Yeavering Bell, just to the left of the path. It is Northumberland’s largest hill fort covering an area of over 5 hectares and said to have been one of the tribal strongholds of the Votadini, who inhabited this area in Roman times.

Difficult traverse particularly at the end near Wooler. Could have stayed two nights at Kirk Yetholm. Nothing at Hethpool.
