Rothbury riverside
The hillside town of Rothbury, with its bustling high street, winding walking routes and romantic riverbanks, is the perfect place for a short walk. Extremely popular with families, this short route involves an easy stroll along the River Coquet.

Roam along river banks

This easy walking route is extremely popular with families and four legged friends. Many walkers park at Beggars Rigg car park or Cowhaugh car park in Rothbury itself, for a gentle stroll along the banks of the River Coquet.

Pop a picnic blanket down at a beauty spot along the way, or return to Rothbury for a pub or café stop. There are a number of eateries serving hot drinks, hearty winter meals, Sunday lunches and many of them welcome dogs.
