This is the second of two day walks in the Kielder area. Click here for walk one.

This walk features the Holly Bush Inn, which is the oldest building in Greenhaugh dating back to 1650. The area was known for border reiving for 300 years, which explains the defensive farm houses or 'bastles' on the route. 

From Greenhaugh it's past Sneep Farm and on to Black Middens Bastle for a short break then across the Tarset and past Sidwood. After a short climb, the route levels out for a while and then arrives at some waterfalls by Slatyford where we'll likely stop for lunch.

After lunch, it's onward to Donkleywood before dropping down to cross the former border counties railway line. The route then continues along the River Tyne Trail to pass Thorneyburn Station and onward past Boggle Hill to Redmire.

At Redmire the hike then crosses the Tarset Burn and carries on upstream to Greenhaugh where we'll likely stop for post walk refreshments at the Holly Bush Inn.
