About The Cheviot Hills

The clearly defined peaks of the glorious Cheviot Hills dominate the western side of the border territory as it juts boldly out from Northumberland into the Scottish Low-lands. When compared with the Pennines these hills appear low, the Cheviot itself rises to only 2,674 feet, but they are no less spectacular, for this is a borderland of brooding, rolling hills, turbulent rivers and deep forests.

The Cheviots are famous hill walking and sheep country, they are equally stunning covered by the glory of an early spring sun, or when mist rises and there is little to be seen save for the peaks breaking through cloud giving way to bright sunshine. But the true grandeur of Cheviot scenery is when the snow falls on what is one of the wildest most remote regions in the whole of England. It is then that these hills, far above the beautiful Coquet Valley, become a winter wonderland with scenic passes to rival the lower reaches of those to be found in any other part of Europe
