Making up for a washout Saturday with a big Northumberland walking day; short walks dodging the forecasts.
A nice stretch of coast north of Craster and a grand English Heritage ruin.
Ros Castle, a steep little moorland hill (via a misplaced forest attempt).
Simonside, a fine and busy escarpment walk (would be stunning in heather season) on a good path. The extension to the highpoint on Tosson Hill is empty and long, but great views to the Cheviots as the sun came out.
And a twilight there-and-back dart on forest tracks to Long Crag. Easy enough but not all that exciting.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
