near Berwick-Upon-Tweed, England (United Kingdom)

Start from old bridge (or from rail station). This route follows easy public footpaths for way out but route back is along Permissive Paths, not marked on OS map, some of which are not well-trodden. So boots, trousers and a stick to beat back nettles are essential! Only one section of about 100m, halfway up Halidon Hill is really overgrown, you just have to beat a path through, it is not too bad. See the ** straight on. indistinct path ** waypoint.
Distance was measured as 9.45 miles but nearer 10 miles since I had to turn GPS off in some parts to save battery.
