Old High Shield
Old High Shield is a spacious single storey building providing self-catering accommodation for two people.
|Old High Shield is situated half way along Hadrianís Wall, lying just half a mile south of its highest point where the Wall crosses the Pennines close to Rapishaw Gap.
It is at this point that the wall follows the natural line of the Whin Sill, a dramatic escarpment of ancient igneous rock.
The surrounding countryside is breathtaking and many of the Wallís favourite views are to be found in this area.
Old High Shield is situated a few hundred yards south of the B6318 (known locally as the Military Road) and is 5 miles from the market town of Haltwhistle, 25 miles east of Carlisle and 31 miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne.
It is possible on a clear day to see Solway Firth from High Shield Crags on Hadrianís Wall where the Whin Sill drops steeply to Cragg Lough.
