Days out in North Northumberland


North Northumberland stretches along the Scottish border, from the rugged countryside and rolling hills of the Cheviots to the beautiful sandy beaches on the coast. The area has a turbulent history, involved in many battles and skirmishes with the Scots. This is evidenced by the large number of castles (most are now ruins) and historical areas. The Cheviot Hills, which include the Northumberland National Park are popular with hikers and walkers but are also ideal for short walks. The North northumberland Coast boasts breathtaking stretches of unspoilt and quiet sandy beaches.

Below are places that we have visited, including some of our photographs. You can view All Places or any of the individual places listed below. I have also added some links to other websites. I hope you enjoy visiting them as much as we have. If you are interested in walking please visit the Short Walks in Northumberland and Short Walks in the Cheviot Hills Pages.
