A PENNINE JOURNEY THROUGH THE CHEVIOT HILLS 

It is perhaps the finest stretch of the Pennine Way and, in its entirety, the 27 mile high-level, border-hugging journey across the Cheviot Hills, from Byrness to Kirk Yetholm, is a five course meal of a walk. From the comfort of your armchair why not enjoy a taste of what you can expect when you set foot on Northumberland`s wild and ragged edge.
