Around Minch Moor and Plora Craig

About This Route

A big forest walk exploring Elibank and Traquair Forest following part of the Southern Upland Way; look out for the Cheese Well so you can leave an offering for the fairies! You may also wish to take the short detour up hill to reach the summit of Minch Moor. This is a route through a forestry plantation and tracks can be as disorientating as hill routes please carry a detailed map like an ordnance survey and be prepared to turn back if there are forestry operations.

Walkerburn lies 2 miles east of Innerleithen on the A72 Peebles road.
