left Tony and Brian at Bloody Bush Edge for a solo trip here. Bright day bagging Nuttalls etc.Lou20/05/2016
ANOTHER FINE DAY. FOLLOWED NUTTALLS WALK 8.2 AFTER DELIGHTFUL DRIVE UP COQUET DALE. VERY ATTRACTIVE WALK THROUGH TO USWAYFORD AND EASY ASCENT OF BLOODYBUSH EDGE. RATHER MONOTONOUS TREK OUT TO CUSHAT LAW AND BACK WHICH LOOKED FURTHER THAN IT WAS. MET 2 OTHER PEOPLE!! BOTH BAGGING SUMMITS (1 HEWITTS, 1 NUTTALLS) AS NO OTHER REASON TO BE OUT ON CUSHAT LAW! PLEASANT WALK TO WINDY GYLE WITH SUPERB VIEWS INTO SCOTLAND AND BACK TO START.BURGESS16/05/2016
From Barrowburn, a round of Yarnspath, Bloodybush Edge, Cushat Law and Windy Gyle.rhalstead27/03/2016
A perfect day, blue skies and frozen bogs! Climbed from Hartside, along the Breamish, and a direct ascent from Low Bleakhope. Various vehicle tracks make it an easy climb. Stunning views out to sea and even towards a very snowy looking Lake District. I was glad of the frozen ground going round to Sting Head. But not even freezing conditions could make a pleasant walk out of the tussocks and bogs going to Black butt. It's all mashed up with vehicle tracks, yuk. Fortunately, the going improves dramatically going to Hogdon Law, which is a fabulous viewpoint. Easy direct descent to Dow Cleugh, and up to Little Dodd, and dry land on the easy track and road back to Alnhammoor.Gill03/02/2016
From below Barrow Law. A 30k circuit taking in WG,BBE&CL.straightforward ascent. Superb views.. bloodybush a long way distant to the eye.. descent to Davidsons Linn and on to edge of forestry on old drovers road. Heathery squelch up shoulder of bloodbush edge. Top is an extremely quiet spot. Onwards to Cushat Law. Nowhere near as bad as feared. Summit of Cushat is a lovely place to sit in the windshelter just watching the clouds over the sea. Returned via endless forestry and a traverse of the north spur of Shillhope Law.stig_nest26/09/2015
Park at Alwinton and followed the track into Kidland Forest. Direct ascent up Cushat Law. West to Bloodybush edge and returned via border cycle ride.dianepick25/05/2015

Started from Alwinton, followed the path just north of Kitty's Crag. Once past wood, very rough terrain.Jhimmy13/07/2003
On our Hartside- Bloodybush Edge- Cushat Law (qv)- Bush Knowe- Hartside round. One of many approaches we took to The Cheviot hills from their E side. What's not to like about these under-rated hill walks? I think too many people have been mentally scarred by doing the Cheviots from the Pennine Way (maybe before the flagstones!). With Pete, who was into doing Nutalls in 2003. The Marilyns were a bonus... but then they were demoted!pwheeler08/07/2003
