  • A hill in Northumberland, England.

    "1. From the north Northumberland town of Wooler your car journey south westwards to the Harthope Valley takes you along narrow, winding roads, culminating in the steep descent of Skirl Naked. After a further 1½ miles you will pass, to your left and on the other side of the Harthope Burn, the former farmstead of Langlee sitting below the deep gash of Easter Dene."

    - 'In The Shadow Of Cheviot', Geoff Holland, 2007.

    I'm finding it hard to picture this, yet skirling naked in the vicinity of gash does have a certain appeal.
