Lying on the south flank of the Cheviot, the highest summit in the Northumberland National Park, the valley is wild with sheep the only inhabitants. Quiet and remote, the valley offers a peaceful walk in glorious surroundings. The route follows the Harthope Burn upstream to reach the waterfall of Harthope Linn.
