    This stage is a walk of two halves; moorland with great views but demanding bogs, and woodland paths that are easy-to-hike but are a tad monotonous.

    That said, there are a couple of spectacular waterfalls to see along the way, as well as a stone circle, and the distance is quite manageable, compared to other days.

    From Bellingham, it is a gentle ascent through fields to the spectacular Hareshaw Linn waterfall. Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest do to its rare ferns and lichen, you might spot red squirrel, great spotted woodpecker, badger, and daubenton’s bat in the area.

    The next section, which crosses farmland and moorland, can get boggy and the path is tricky to follow in places.

    Around the halfway point, the landscape changes from boggy moorland paths to solid woodland paths. Whilst steady footing might make a welcome change, it is a bit of a slog through this next section.

    A few miles later, you pass close to Hindhope Linn, a beautiful waterfall in a serene and enchanting dell.

    A short time later, it is worth making another slight detour to see the Three Kings of Denmark, a legendary Bronze Age stone circle.

    There are a few accommodation options and places to eat and drink in Byrness, but the village does not have a great deal.
