From Wooler continue on the A697 towards Coldstream, branching left about 3 kilometres from Wooler at Akeld. Continue for a further 5 kilometres to West Newton where a left turn is made to Hethpool. The road from Hethpool to Dunsdale Farm (6 kilometres) is a public right of way on foot or bike, but to take a car requires written permission from John Sale & Partners, College Valley Estate Office, Wooler (closed weekends) which should be sought in advance.
An alternative is to walk over the north flank of Cheviot from the Harthope Valley.
