Description

Join our guided walk - Holystone High & Low

A walk of contrasts, our walk highlights some of the diverse use of land within the National Park illustrating the work of the Forestry Commission, Ministry of Defence and Northumberland Wildlife Trust.

Following a series of public footpaths through the forest we visit Lady’s Well at Holystone then head north west before ascending to the heather-clad summit of Cold Law where we enjoy extensive views of the surrounding countryside. From the summit cairn and trig point we descend past the ruined farmstead at Harbottle Crag to join the Burma Road next to the National Park Information Point. Continuing downhill on the range road our route re-enters the forest and returns to the car park via the Holystone Burn Nature Reserve.

Discover the best routes in the Northumberland National Park on our Volunteer Guided Walks. Get outside, enjoy your time 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.

To avoid disappointment we recommend you book your tickets in advance online as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks. Whilst well behaved dogs on leads are welcome, please take note of any specific instructions by the walk leader and the concerns of others. If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival

Lace up your boots and enjoy a great time outside.
