St Cuthberts Cave can be seen from The Shepherds Hut. Walking through a pine wood you will arrive at the cave where Saint Cuthbert's remains were brought to protect them from Viking raiders. With views across the Cheviots it is a lovely place to sit and have a picnic in shelter. From there a short walk over the moor up to the trig point, on a clear day you can see Lindisfarne, Dunstanburgh and Bambrough along the coast line.
If you want to head inland there are very good walks from Wooler into the National Park, Linhope Spout, Yeavering Bell or Cheviot to name just a few.
