Northumberland Unbound: Unforgettable Adventures and Unique Experiences

1. Routin Linn Waterfall (6.6miles, 14min drive from Tiptoe)

Not to be mistaken with the more famous Roughting Linn which is located a further 13miles away. This waterfall is a real hidden gem. It feels very secluded, and you are likely to have it all to yourselves. As well as the waterfall there is prehistoric rock art called ‘cup & ring’ displayed.

Waterfall is situated 3 km from Kimmerston or alternatively there is a walking route from Ford Castle through Ford Moss nature reserve and on to the waterfall (6.5 mile circular walk). Postcode: TD15 2QF
