Walking festival offers wall and whisky
Bookmark and Share
A walking festival in the longest days of the year will offer peace and tranquility as well as a selection of enjoyable guided walks, it has been promised.

The Rothbury and Coquetdale Walking Festival in Northumberland offers some of the best scenery in the national park and a chance to enjoy scenery, history and the long daylight hours, organisers have said.

Visitors coming with their hiking boots and rucksacks will be able to enjoy a midsummer night's walk, test themselves on the Cragside Challenge Walk and enjoy plenty of history, be it on the whisky stills of Coquetdale - where illicit distilling took place - or Hadrian's Wall.

It costs between £9.50 and £13 to take part in each of the walks, depending on the event itself, with the majority being £10.

The Northumberland National Park is renowned for its solitude and this may owe much to its population of only 2,200, the lowest of any UK national park.
