Heiton and Bowmont Forest

About This Route

A long circular that passes through Heiton, south-west of Kelso, and explores a large area of arable land south-east of Kelso. This route was designed with horse-riders in mind so it also makes a good cycle route. The railway here closed to passengers in July 1964 and to freight four years later.
