Join us for our guided walk; Whisky, Waterfalls, Drovers and Dark Deeds.
This circular walk starts and finishes at the car park at Wedder Leap in the Upper Coquet Valley. We begin by heading up Kyloe Shin to the remote Usway Burn before a rugged ascent takes us to a vantage point overlooking the site of an illicit whisky still attributed to the notorius “Black Rory”.
There is much to see including the waterfalls on the Clay Burn and Davidson’s Linn before we use an old drove route to head back to Barrowburn via Murder Cleugh, the site of a dreadful murder in 1610.
Discover the best routes in the Northumberland National Park on our Volunteer Guided Walks. Get outside and enjoy a day’s walking and leave the planning and navigation to us; it’s what we’re best at.
Nobody knows the best places to walk in the National Park like our volunteers so you’ll never be short of local history, stories, features and viewpoints.
Lace up your boots and enjoy a great day outside.
