The Three Brethren

About This Route

One of Scottish Borders’ iconic hills (465m), topped with three impressive cairns demarking the meeting of three estates – Buccleuch Estate, Yair Estate and Selkirk Burgh. This is a hill walk and we recommend that you carry a more detailed map, for example, an ordnance survey sheet. This route starts on the Corbie Linn track that is lined with a magnificent stand of Douglas fir; Corbie is a Scot’s word for crow.
