From cattle grid (NT 9640 1266) solo 14 mile circular: Hogdon Law -> Wether Cairn -> Cushat Law -> Bloodybush Edge -> Lint Lands -> Shill Moor -> High Knowes.jonglew08/11/2019
Fairly easy ascent from Bloodbush Edge over marshy ground as part of the Cheviot Six 26mile hike. Summit was covered in cloud and the last rays of the sun were rapidly departing. Followed the wrong burn off (Smalehope) instead of Hareshaw Cleugh resulting in having to go over the top of Bush Knowe to get back on track. Picked up road at Low Bleakhope and followed it back to Hartside. Arrived back at car at 11:30pm.

Parked at cattle grid GR 964 127. Good track goes around Hogdon Law and up to summit. Then heather bashing across to fence near Black Butt then followed fence upto WeatherCairn. 4x4 tracks on west side. Return to Black Butt and along fences to Cushat Law and Bloodybush Edge, mainly on 4x4 tracks but rutted and boggy. Went down across Salters road up to Lint Lands. Returned to Salters road for a long trek back passing over High Knowesmart079704/07/2019

nattalls route 8.1 but with out windy very hard going up throw the bogs and the heather to the summit of bloodybush edge and then over to the summit the only paths over to Cushat Law where the quad tracks and even most of them where very very wet but the shelter on the summit as it started to rain was very welcoming this walk is longer than you think and quite hard goingDarren-44326/05/2019

From road at 859114. Room to park several vehicles. To Uswayford on bike then on foot via path SE to ridge. Path along south side of fence to summit of Bloodybush Edge. Continued along north side of fence to Cushat Law. Wet and boggy in places due to passage of quad bikes, but no major problems. Windy Gyle from the SE on return route.Winterfloodian20/10/2018

As part of a reccie for the Cheviot Goat Ultra with Pete.Very wet underfoot.Lykewake4218/11/2017
Cycled from Alwinton north to top of Kisdon Forest then walked up to summit, before doing the boggy trip along to Bloodybush Edge.IanHHill01/11/2017
The boggy ground between Bloodybush and Cushat is bad but not nearly as bad as the alternative return to the Wedder Leap car park which I was 'advised' to take, i.e. drop south from Cushat (a promisingly easy start) and follow the logging roads and footpaths back to Fairhaugh. The roads are fine but the map-marked paths are overgrown/virtually non-existant and there's (more obviously) a lot of re-ascent involved. Nearly 3hr of hard going. Not recommended!Tony S04/08/2017
From picnic site at Barrowburn, via Middle Hill, fording Usway Burn (easy with low water level), up slope to Yarnsparth Law, then on rough paths over Bloodybush Edge and then long walk out to Cushat Law. Retraced route to slope below Bloodybush Edge, then contoured lower slope of hill northish over rough heather to Salter's Road. Followed this good track to the border ridge, then SW to Windy Gyle and return to start via Rowhope. Quite a trek.Cas-gwent20/07/2017

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
