Windy Gyle circuit, Cheviots

This fine hill circuit uses grassy tracks to make a horsehoe in a remote part of the Cheviots - visiting the huge and ancient cairn on the summit of Windy Gyle.


Mostly good grassy hill tracks to and from the ridge. The ridge section follows the Pennine Way and has stone slabs over any formerly boggy parts.
