From Langleeford. Scald Hill, The Cheviot, Cairn Hill, Comb Fell, Hedgehope Hill. Recommend taking a set of ladders to lay across the peat hags!raffemeister14/09/2018
With Tony and Sophie. From Langleeford over Scald Hill, Cheviot, Cairn Hill, dog leg to point 743 for a quick visit to Scotland then back over Comb Fell and Hedgehope Hill. Dry underfoot! Great views towards Lindisfarne and Bamburgh from Hedgehope. Nice (optional) scramble on Housey Crags on descent.zoob11/08/2018
Up by Langleeford burn then back via Scald Hill - a nice circuit on a warm day!twg2718/07/2018
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
My last English Nuttall.tomd415/06/2018
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

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

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

Came at the Cheviot from Cairn Hill having done Hedgehope Hill and Comb Fell previously. Easy going on the paved stones. Reached summit at 8.20pm then descended via Scald Hill in the dark using the fences as a guide. There was a father and son at the summit ill-equiped and helped guide them off the mountain.NorthernWayfarer23/08/2016
Circular walk up from Langleeford via Scald Hill. return was by the Harthope Burn which involved many tricky crossings as the burn was in spate after the previous days rain.DanMaisieBex21/08/2016

Trig high up. Had a long dry spell which had dried out the bogs somewhat. Slabs put down really helped otherwise in wet would have been a bog fest. Good views. Company: Soloiandesbottes15/05/2016
