Northumberland and the Scottish Borders are a walkers’ paradise. Even for those who wouldn’t normally spend their days traversing the nation’s highways and byways, the area with its big skies, spectacular views, open moors, heather clad hills and breathtaking coastline, entices you to step out.

It’s a place where you can find tranquillity on a leisurely stroll or adventure on a more challenging hill and moorland trek in the rolling Cheviots which hug the Scottish Border.

Northumberland National Park alone has 600 miles (900km) of way marked footpaths and bridleways to choose from.

In fact, there are so many walks you will be spoilt for choice.
