- Notes: This short route is a popular walk with local people.

Whithaugh Bridge was built in 2014 by a partnership of local community and public agencies. This bridge also provides a link for the 7-stanes cycle route between the village and Priesthaugh Forest mountain bike trails. The Holm Bridge was built in 1823. This short circular route crosses the Liddle Water using the Whithaugh Bridge and returns via the Holm Bridge.
