Summary: The Berwick Borough Boundary Walk is a long distance walk over various terrains in the Borders country of North East England and South East Scotland. The route goes across farmland, over moorland, up through the Cheviot Hills and along coast and beach. From the beginning of the walk in Berwick Upon Tweed the walk heads south along the coast via Spittal, Redshin Cove, Saltpan Rocks, Cocklawburn Beach, Cocklawburn Dunes Nature Reserve, Cheswick Sands, Goswick Sands and Longbridge End to the Lindisfarne Causeway. A visit to the Holy Island is an optional addition to the walk, should tides permit. From Lindisfarne Causeway the walk continues along the coastline of Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve to Tealhole Point before heading inland. The village of Belford is the first significant inland location to be passed on the route. After Belford the walk returns to the coast via Spindlestone Heights. The southernmost point of Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve before the walk continues on the coastline to Bamburgh Castle, Seahouses and Benthall. Then the way heads inland to pass Beadnell, Swinnow, West Fleetham, Chathill, Ellingham, Wandy Law, Haughtershaw, Eglingham Moor, Beanley, Powburn, Branton, Castle Knowe, Old Fawdon Hill, Lumsden Hill and Alnhammoor before heading into the Cheviot Hills. King's Seat and Cairn Hill are next tackled from where a short detour to scale The Cheviot is a tempting option. The Schil is next reached, followed by White Law before the route descends into Kirk Yetholm. Next is moorland and farmland to Hoselaw Loch and then more moor, farmland and a strech of dismantled railway to Cornhill on Tweed where a detour to visit the Scottish town of Coldstream is a further option. The River Tweed is now followed to Linn Dean via Norham. Horncliffe, Union Bridge and Paxton House. The coast is then returned to via Paxto, Clappers and Lamberton before walking south along the coast back to Berwich Upon Tweed.
