Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
No eateries on route, although during the summer you can get some excellent Doddington's ice cream from the information centre. Visit (http://www.northumberlandnationalpark.org.uk/visiting/placestovisit/cheviothills/nationalparkcentreingram.htm) to check it's open.
At the duck pond you can wonder at the awe inspiring nature of the subgalcial meltwater gully as researched by Chapman et al. in the 1960's in their seminal works on fluvioglacial processes in the Cheviots, work undertaken under John Sharpe, to whom I am indebted for an appreciation of the Cheviot landscape.
Lots of hill forts too.
