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.
