This Northumberland walk starts from Hethpool and explores the Cheviot Hills west of the College Valley. The route heads upstream, following the College Burn into the hills lying along the England Scotland border. Turning west the walk passes a hill fort on an ascent of Blackhaggs Rigg to reach the border at Black Hag. Turning north the route continues along the border to join the Pennine Way for a short section to reach White Law. Turning east the route crosses the flanks of Madam Law to reach the isolated farm at Trowupburn from where and ascent to the hill fort on Great Hetha. The route sees few walkers and the views are exceptional.
