    Table of contents

    The Ingram Wether Hill and Ewe Hill Road Walk is an excellent Northumberland adventure that features a variety of terrain and scenic views across the landscape. While out walking the trail, you will work your way around the Branton Ponds and along the River Breamish, before traversing the undulating terrain of Wether Hill, Cochrane Pike, and Ewe Hill on the return. Be sure to exercise caution on the return leg of the walk, as it does follow along the road for a good stretch.

    Route Description for Ingram Wether Hill and Ewe Hill Road Walk

    If you are after a bit of a longer trail through Northumberland that will provide some beautifully scenic views and can still be undertaken by the entire family, then the 16.6km Ingram Wether Hill and Ewe Hill Road Walk will be perfectly suited to your needs.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will initially head east to meet up with the road, before turning right and following it southwest towards the Branton Ponds. Here, you will leave the road behind and pass in between the two bodies of water while enjoying some lovely views of the surrounding landscape. After reaching the banks of the River Breamish, you will follow it to the southwest until you arrive at the Cheviot Holiday Cottages outside of Ingram.

    From here, you will head to the south across the open farmland and climb uphill to reach the top of Wether Hill. After taking some time to appreciate the swapping views of the surrounding Northumberland landscape, you will continue on to the southwest to the summit of Cochrane Pike, before heading north to Ewe Hill. From here, the route will descend back into the village of Ingram to meet up with the road, which you will follow to the east in order to arrive back at the trailhead where you started.
