About the Guide
By Geoff Holland.
110 page, full colour, A5 booklet describing eight longer walks that experience the 'wilder side' of the Cheviot Hills.
In the great scheme of matters mountainous the Cheviot Hills are not especially big hills, rising to a mere 815 metres (2674 feet) at their highest point. However these are lonely hills of sweeping vistas and far-off horizons, where wild goats roam and the call of the curlew echoes across centuries of a violent and bloody past. These are predominantly grass-covered hills of long, shapely ridges and deep hidden valleys. These are hills which offer walking of the finest quality.
Written by the author of three popular books of walks, 'The Cheviot Hills', 'Walks from Wooler' and 'The Hills of Upper Coquetdale', this latest book contains eight totally unique self-guided walks with detailed, simple to follow route descriptions and a sandwich box full of easily digestible information. These are walks designed to tempt inquisitive and adventurous walkers outside their normal walking boundaries. These are walks for the connoisseur with a taste for something just that little bit different. So pull on your boots and take 'a walk on the wild side'.
