Lovely circular walk from Bolam West House following bridal path towards Shaftoe Moor, then cutting over the crags to the TP and south to pick up the track that leads past East Shaftoe Hall and back towards Bolam. Extensive views in all directions, Cheviot visible beyond Simonside Hills. A really lovely spot.

Had to park in a lay-by a short distance from the start of the footpath and negotiate the busy A696. Decent road / tracks all the way to the pillar. Decent views.

Walked along lane towards East Shaftoe Hall then bridleway to Salters Nick, south past Shaftoe Grange onto curving path up hill to find trig point on summit. The area was being used for motorcycle trail event. So peaceful ! .

Find while visiting five geocaches nearby. Much better than the two trigs I found in hedges earlier in the day.

Little gem of a hill and trig. Parked in nearby layby on A696 on walked in on PROW. Remains of the ditch for the hillfort easily seen on way to trig and lovely rock (Ripers Chair) sculptured by nature and human hand on the south crag. Trig had the fresh remains a some furry creature on the top, must be used by local bird(s) of prey as dining table!

A fine day as we took our 6 month old daughter out in the backpack. Started at Bolam Lake and did a circuit via Shaftoe Crags of about 6 miles. Beautiful day and cracking views from trig.

Dragged the family out for an Easter Monday walk as an alternative to walking round Wallington or Belsay grounds. Not that many people, and only a few climbers bouldering. Sunny day with a fine view over to Wallington Hall.
