Black dogs and high tees - 8.5 Miles, Options for shorter route. A walk on the Herefordshire border - Kington, Hergest Ridge and Rushock Hill

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

A great black hound with flaming eyes haunts the hills of Kington and is said to have inspired Conan Doyle’s Hound of the Baskervilles. From Hergest Ridge you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of a post-glacial landscape. A curious dog’s leg in the line of Offa’s Dyke on Rushock Hill leads you to the highest 18-hole golf course in England. But don’t play around or the dog will get you!
