Blawearie Shepherd’s Hut

Building In Alnwick, Northumberland

A ruined shepherd's hut in the moors near Old Bewick set amongst crags and cairns.

As part of our wander up to Ros Castle and Cateran Hole we found this cool little ruin up in the crags towards the end of our walk.

This building is known as the Blawearie Shepherd's Hut and was occupied by local farmers and shepherds until it was requisitioned by the War Office for military training. It was then abandoned in 1940 when the original occupants didn't want to move back in leaving the house to fall into disrepair.

It's an absolute breath-taking area in a remote area surrounded by crags, moors, hills and cairns making it a magical place.

The name Blawearie means “tired of the wind” and fortunately it wasn't too blowy when we visited and so we had a chance to take a few aerial shots with Red 5.

It's such a tranquil place for a meander and don't forget to explore the crags and the nearby cairns too.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
