Red/ purple route

Nice easy family route. Purple all forest road. Red a mixture of forest road and single track. Not too difficult.

This was perfect. We brought 2 bikes to test for our shop The Sports Shed in Cullercoats Ne26 2pq and what a great surprise. We will be back in the next month.

Sort of knew this was here when booking a stay at Abbotshaw House nearby (excellent B&B) and was planning to bring the bikes anyway. I'm glad we did, we had great fun coming down the easier tracks here (me on cyclocross the missis on an MTB) - there's some more gnarly routes for those who know what they're doing. We... More

It's a stern looking old Scottish castle on the moorlands and has a brooding menacing feel about it. Best seen in low grey clouds and light rain rather than blazing sun shine if you want the best effect!

This has extended the route to over 24km but still an easy ride in comparison to other trails. New section has good single track especially on the descent, however he downhill section... More

Just travelled 20 miles to walk at newcastleton and found the walks and visitor centre have disappeared !! The remaining car park offers 2 to 3 miles walks, all the 7to 9 milers have gone WHY ?!

Quiet, unobtrusive & friendly. Dont just drive through. Do the river walk and eat in the grapes. Nothing to dislike really except paying more for petrol in this area because its remote. Not fair for residents & travellers alike!

Was a quiet little village. Would not say that it was the prettiest of places but the people that we met whilst we were visiting were friendly and the meal in the Liddaw Hotel was absolutely lovely. The chef, Thomas came out to introduce himself and to let us know what the specials were for the evening. My husband tried... More

Fabulous route with plenty of technical challenges especially on the red route! You could also cycle through to Kielder Water on the forestry tracks.
