Backpacking with Independent Spirit

Itinerary - The first night's camp is to the west of Carlisle, taking a stroll from Bowness to the first night's camp on the afternoon beforehand. There are then four walking days to Heddon-on-the-Wall, or five walking days to Wallsend.

Daily Routine - Trekkers don't have to walk as a group, but are free to walk at a time of their own choosing, in whatever company they prefer, self-guided with their map, to the destination prepared for their arrival.

Two Itineraries to choose from

'Bowness > Heddon'
70 Miles - 5 Days - Self-Guided - 4 Nights

Bowness-on-Solway Start - From where the Trail starts, the Trek begins (having dropped main bags off at the first night's campsite, or with us in Carlisle at midday) with an afternoon ten-mile 'stretch of the legs' along the Solway Firth to the first night's camp on the outskirts of a village to the west of Carlisle.

Heddon-on-the-Wall Finish - Four full-day walks, covering a further sixty miles and three more camps, the last day's walk finishes where the Trail on the line of the Wall ends (before diverting down to the banks of the River Tyne).

Day 1 - First Day's Walk - First Night Camp - An afternoon (4-5 hour) walk along the Solway Firth, to the first night's camp. There is a country pub that serves meals right next to the campsite.

Day 2 - Second Day's Walk - Second Night Camp - A full day's walk (6-7 hours) by the banks of the River Eden, via Carlisle (where you can take a break for breakfast or a coffee) then on into the Cumbrian countryside, to a camp set up by a working farm, with a farmhouse that can provide an evening meal (and / or breakfast in the morning), as well as having a drinks license.

Day 3 - Third Day's Walk - Third Night Camp - A full day’s walk (6-7 hours) is up on to the Northumbrian Whin Sill, passing Walltown Crags, to a campsite near the Wall's midway point. There is a country pub that serves meals nearby.

Day 4 - Fourth Day's Walk - Fourth Night Camp - A full-day's walk (6-7 hours) continuing along the Whin Sill, past the Wall's highest point and into the North Tyne valley. The camp is set up by the banks of the River North Tyne, with a café that can offer breakfast and the nearby village has a pub that serves evening meals.

Day 5 - Last Day's Walk - A full day (5-6 hours) following the line of the Wall to Heddon-on-the-Wall, where Trekkers are reunited with their heavy bags.
