Why we love this walk
A lovely walk with fantastic views of Longtown and the surrounding areas, starting and ending in the town of Longtown.
We did this walk with our toddler in a hiking backpack, it is not pram accessible. The 2 mile circular route is a great opportunity to see plenty of wildlife and explore more of Longtown. There are some wonderful views and a few hidden sections where you are able to get down to the River Esk and skim stones. Please do be extremely careful with your little ones when you are close to any water, the River Esk can be extremely fast flowing at times.
This is a wonderfully flat walk for children to stretch their legs, splash in muddy puddles and collect sticks and stones! The terrain is a mixture of gravel paths and grassy footpaths, if choosing to take the circular route please note the terrain does become quite difficult underfoot. If you’re walking with younger children I would recommend walking the linear route.
Note: Some sections can get muddy, suitable footwear is advised. There is a very small gate half way through this walk making it unsuitable for pushchairs (unless you are willing to lift your pram over the gate).
We used free, off road parking on Esk Bank. This is also within close distance to Longtown Play Area. Postcode: CA6 5PT.
