Innerleithen and Walkerburn by the River Tweed

About This Route

A great circular between the two towns following the banks of the River Tweed. Please be considerate to the land use of sheep farming and fishing. The River Tweed rises in the Lowther Hills and flows for 100 miles before emptying into the sea at Berwick-upon-Tweed. It is Scotland’s 4th largest river. You can start at either settlement; Walkerburn’s hub is at Caberston cafe where you will also find information boards.
