Walk to Scotland
We are delighted to partner with NBS on the Walk to Scotland challenge. Trek 20 miles from the Cheviot Hills to Windy Gyle across the Scottish border.
Friday 13th September 2019
£30 registration fee
£100 fundraising target
The walk starts by following an old Drover’s Road from the valley, you then meet the Pennine Way and follow the Border Ridge, then go through the gate into Scotland, where the top of Windy Gyle is. The views are fantastic (weather permitting of course!) and you may even bump into some of the local wild goats. This walk is not self-guided, there will be a leader with you at all times.
It is a long walk with lots of ups and downs, so you need to be relatively fit. We recommend you do go out for a few walks as training, but you don’t need to be super fit – which is one of the attractions of this challenge.
Please note – this challenge is organised in partnership with NBS for employees and other stakeholders. We will be organising a Walk to Scotland for the general public in 2020, so please get in touch if you are interested in learning more.
