Event description

Description

This walk takes in the 13th century Tarset and Dally Castles, strongholds built when this area of North Tynedale came under the Scottish crown.

The return north crosses the River Tyne again by the historic footbridge built to access Thorneyburn station on the now defunct Border Counties railway.

The return over Sidwood gives good views of the North Tyne before passing Thorneyburn church with its connection to the Napoleonic Wars. This is a varied walk whose tranquillity belies its more violent past.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks. If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival.

Lace up your boots and enjoy a great time outside.
