About This Route
A reasonable long circular that passes round the Eildons rather than including steep climbs; there are great views on much of this route. You can also stop for a moment at the Rhymer’s Stone; Thomas Rhymer was spirited away by the fairies according to folklore. The Eildon Hills are an iconic part of the Scottish Borders landscape. The views from their tops are stunning allowing the observer on a clear day to look out to the Lammermuirs, Moorfoots and Upper Tweeddale Hills.
