Headed out to the Cheviots for a decent day in the hills. A windy clear and dry day made for a hard long walk.

Arrived about 10:15 and parked the car at Hartside Farm and headed off about 10:40 following the road towards Linhope Farm, about a mile down the road. The track follows a well defined road all the way to a ford at a sheepfold, passing through several farms, the last one being unoccupied. This takes about 2 hours of walking. The track then heads up the hill towards Bloodybush Edge following the fence line.

The track up Bloodybush is boggy and heavy going in places. Once at the the top good views of the surrounding hills come into view. The trig point is unimpressive. Follow the track along to the top of Cushat Law, where no trig point exists, however a cairn provides good shelter and a chance for lunch out of the wind.

Once fuelled I headed towards Shill Moor and the Salters Road which can be seen from the top of Cushat Law. A good track underfoot leads the way.

Once the road is reached it is an easy walk back towards Hartside farm by a well worn track.

A good day out taking 5 hours 37 to complete. Never saw another soul all day.
