How to get here


Just after Lowick heading south towards Wooler on the B6525 take the turning on the right at a crossroads just after the right turn to Ford. Drive for about 2 miles until you come to some trees by a junction where a sign says Roughting Linn Farm. Park on the verge and walk back along the line of the trees the way you drove. Dont go down the track to the farm, this goes to the Goatstones another site. On the left you should make out the rock mound among the trees. Near the end of the trees is a gap in the fence and a path that takes you there.
