The Cheviot from Broadhope Hill.jpg

These rounded grassy hills are volcamic in origin, with a granite core from a later intrusion. The few crags ar all composed of lavas and are quite unlike any other crags in the region. The only crag with many worthwhile routes is The Henhole, at the head of the College Vallye on the slopes of Cheviot. During good winters Henhole, Bizzle and Linhope Spout provide some quite reasonable winter lines, but they are usually only in condition for a couple of days at most.
