Great walk in a very scenic part of the Cheviots. Easy to follow footpath throughout the route. Plenty of parking at the start complete with a tearoom for a wee brew at the end!!

Though not an area I know, this looks like a great hike, I guess the blue skies and the fluffy white clouds don't hurt that notion either :lol: looks like a great day in the hills :D

Yeah RTC looking at the OS Map there are
Plenty of different routes upto the ridge
And onto Windy Gyle. We have now done it
From both sides. I think the route
From the south is a lot more scenic.
