Hedgehope a hill, Linhope Spout a waterfall

Hedgehope in the Cheviot Range rises to 2,343 feet (714-metres). Unlike its more famous neighbour, The Cheviot, from its summit Hedgehope has some grandstand views making all the uphill walking worth the effort. At well over 2,000 feet, Hedgehope qualifies as a mountain, so if you’re up for a challenge, lace up your hiking boots and join this 10-mile (16-kilometres) STRENUOUS walk to the summit of Northumberland’s second highest peak.

The moorland is home to a number of birds, red grouse all year and in the Spring and Summer, curlew and lapwing are common.

The final highlight of the walk is if you’re brave enough, a wild swim at the foot of the highest waterfall in the National Park, Linhope Spout. If you fancy a dip, just let me know and it can be included in the itinerary. If you just want to stand and stare, then that’s absolutely fine as well.

You will have memories of a remote and wild landscape, a sense of achievement and if you do take the plunge into the Linhope Spout pool, then that is an unforgettable experience too.
