Ingram is a small village in the Cheviot Hills, within the Northumberland National Park.The walk from Ingam to the hill fort on the top of Brough Law is about 4 miles and will take about 2hrs minutes. The walk takes you through the picturesque Breamish Valley before mounting Brough Law to the hill fort at the top where you will rewarded with breathtaking views down to the valley and to the across to The Cheviots.
From Wooler take the A697 south towards Alnwick and Morpeth for about 8 miles before turning to the right towards Ingram and the Breamish Valley. Continue along this quiet road for 3 miles beside the River Breamish before crossing over the river at Ingram, parking in the car park on the left. Leave the car park via a gate by the river and join a path taking you through a small wooded area before reaching the cafe and the village church. The cafe has toilets and local information. The church is well worth a visit

1. Leave the village and follow the road past some holiday cottages before reaching a junction. Turn left and follow the road past some houses set back from the road and an old post box on the right. You may also see the odd turkey or peacock. At the cattle grid stop and admire the stunning view across the valley to the hills.
2. Continue along the road until you reach a car park (and toilets) on the right. The river here is shallow and the perfect place to sit and enjoy the magnificent scenery.
For a shorter walk park in the car park here and commence at step 3 below.
3. Cross the road from the car park at ascend the hill signposted to Brough Law. On the way up are two benches where you can sit and admire the views.
(For a less strenuous climb head back down the road towards Ingram and turn right approaching the hill from the opposite side. This may take longer but the climb is gentler and just as rewarding).
