Up The Coquet River To Peak At Scotland

Up The Coquet River To Peak At Scotland

Tis worth the drive, definitely worth the escapism to travel way up deep into the Coquet Valley, get out on foot, walk to the Cheviot tops and look at the beginning of Scotland before you… here….

The Coquet River meanders downstream past places like Rothbury to end up at the east Coast. Being a more hilly man I went the other way and the remoteness and beauty just takes your breath away.

The road gets narrower and narrower, the signs of human life gets more limited. Untouched Northumberland beauty stares at you in all directions. I was aching to get to the road’s end to get out and go upwards on foot!

The end of the road was Chew Green. The remains of a complex Roman Fort. Laying out the path ahead. It is also a part of the Pennine Way with Scotland ahoy!

Not a single soul could be seen, the fresh air rushing over the head. I was in my element. The view over to Scotland was huge as in the first picture on this post. But the view looking back over Northumberland and the Cheviots was just as incredible.

I am honoured to now live on this river a bit further down. It has shown me new adventures and a lot more to see and learn. Such a small percentage of the area, National Park I have seen too! Let’s Go!

    Looks like the kind of country I would enjoy hiking through – at least on sunny days. What a great set of photos too.
