This burn flows with a relatively steep gradient interspersed with deeper pools through the mature woods of Kielder Forest upstream of Kielder reservoir. The burn flows through the forest before joining the main lake west of the Kielder road. A fantastic getaway spot and an ideal location to catch those elusive wild brown trout.
