Parked in Harthope valley and did a straight up and down over Scald hillAristotle Chip19/02/2020
Third top on a twelve mile walk starting from Harthope valley taking in two Dewey's and two county tops. The route was Broadhope hill, Preston hill, The Cheviot, Hangingstone hill and returning via Langleeford. I would not recommend this return in wet weather as it involves many crossing's of Harthope burn if done again I would return over Scald hill and then drop down to the tarmacked road.WAYNE ROWLETT18/11/2019
We did this the hard way, having parked in the wrong car park, adding on an extra 4 miles to the planned 8 mile walk! Also climbed Cold Law first by the steepest route. Gorgeous September day on the ascent. Blowing a Hooley at the top and Vinny got white finger, so we confirm its 10 degrees colder at the top and dont go on a windy day. Not bad views on the descent. Pleased with our achievement given we are knocking on the door of our 6th decade!SueVinny22/09/2019
Originally climbed some time in 1991 but couldn't get close to the trig point due to the bog, the stones layed since have changed that.Swindon Bagger27/08/2019

From Comb Fell as part of the Cheviot Six 26mile hike. Once at Scotsmans Knowe, it is easy to the top of the Cheviot, just getting across Comb Fell is not pleasant. A nice spring of clear fresh water on the ascent of Cairn's Hill.

Then on to Cairn Hill with an out and back to Cairn Hill West Top and Auchope Cairn. Descent then to Harthope Burn then rough going up to Comb Fell in and out of ditches and ankle deep bog.

With CP on Pennine Waygarth8714/07/2018
Fourth time up The Cheviot. Same route up as previous ascents but extended along the Pennine Way to bag Cairn Hill (both tops) and Auchope Cairn. Had intended to take in Combe Fell and Hedgehope as a circular but it was too hot (high 20s) so ended up following the infant Harthope Burn to Langleeford Hope then the track along the valley floor to the car. Started up at 07.20 to try and avoid the heat. Strong sun all dy, slightly hazy. Walked alone.Skip28/06/2018

After bagging Broadhope and Preston hills. We attempted to head up Cheviot from Goldscleugh farm but missed the path after taking a detour to avoid cattle that were spooked by the dog. Ended up heather bashing up the side with no distinct pathways. As such we drifted too far eastwards to Woolhope Crag. In the fog we were a little disorientated and thought we had gone as far as the Scald Hill/Cheviot shoulder but dismissed that as impossible because we could make out the head of a valley in the mist. By this time it was after 5pm and we were feeling tired from all the uphill heather bashing we had been doing. So we followed the contour around to where the Cheviot meets Scald Hill and descended via Scald. Was an interesting route, and we are making plans to return to ascend Cheviot from that direction.NorthernWayfarer31/05/2018

From Sourhope Farm up Auchope Rigg and via Auchope Cairn (same as last time). This time with my daughter (aged 6). There and back. Total distance 10.4 miles (16.7km) - time taken to summit 5.5 hours (incl. 40 min lunch break at Auchope Hut) - total time 8.5 hours. The Cheviot is not easy for children.NorthernWayfarer20/05/2018

Cheviot from Cocklawfoot via Mallie Side, back down Auchope Rig, with Alexander. Sunny, but fair bit of snow on top.agentmancuso09/04/2018
Route up the valley boggy and areas where path has disappeared into the burn. Challenging walking near the summit through deep snow. However, beautiful views from the return via Scald Hill.halice08/04/2018
Plenty of parking areas at Langleeford, followed boggy track along valley crossed Burn numerous times, up to Cairn Hill along Pennine Way flags. Down via Scald Hillrogreeves14/10/2017
From end of public road before Langleeford. Via Scauld Hill. Good path at first but gradually deteriorated into a boggy morass higher up until the concrete slabs on the summit plateau. Clear and sunny but only 4 others seen in the 3 hours I was on the hill.AndrewFinnimore06/10/2017
Up Auchope Rig from Sourhope then via Auchope cairn. Weather started good but wind picked up on the summit and cloud came in on the way back to Auchope hut where we stopped for lunch before heading to the Schil. Met one person on way to the summit and two more when heading back from summit.NorthernWayfarer22/09/2017

Circular route from parking area at Langleeford: Hedgehope Hill, Comb Fell, Cairn Hill, Cairn Hill West Top, The Cheviot, then back to Langleeford via Scald Hill. Super sunny day with dry conditions which made easier work of areas of blanket bog on Hedgehope Hill & Comb Fell. I met a basking viper just above parking area on my return to Langleeford!Cas-gwent18/07/2017
Cheviot horseshoe anticlockwise, including a quick detour to Auchope Cairn. Still a bit boggy at both sides of Comb Fell, I wouldn't want to try this one without this week's heatwave!the_adam24/06/2017

Parked at Lagleeford, walked up Harthope valley then up to the cairn where it meets the Penine way on onto summit. Down via scald hill. Good work has been done on restoring the lower base of the trig point very recently. Clear dry day, with good footing almost throughout ...we were lucky!keithelliott24/09/2016
