Until recently, there was a permissive footpath running right around Chillingham Park. This footpath is now closed.

Following the devastation caused by Storm Arwen, the route is impassable and dangerous in parts. Please do not attempt to use the footpath, despite it still appearing in some old guide books.

There are plenty of walking opportunities close by. Hepburn Woods, to the south of the Park, is owned by the Forestry Commission, offers charming walking on forest tracks. Ros Castle, to the immediate east of the Park, is a famous viewpoint and well worth the hike up to the top.
