Ettrick Water Circular - North

About This Route

A short circular along the banks of Ettrick Water on easy access paths passing attractive riverside woodland on the north-west bank and crossing the water over high footbridges. This area is flanked by Selkirk’s mills which are still alive with a variety of business today. Selkirk’s Riverside is currently undergoing major flood protection works so you may be diverted away from your intended route at some points.
