About This Route
A short circular following the Southern Upland Way in part and crossing the River Tweed over the attractive Chain Bridge. The Chain Bridge was built in 1826 with a restriction placed on it that only 8 people were allowed on it at any one time; swinging the bridge was an offence. Gattonside is situated on a south slope so the monks had their orchards here.
