About This Route

Although a short circular this route includes a steep climb up through St Ronan’s Wood, managed by the Woodland Trust. The route affords excellent views and a pleasant return along the River Tweed. 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.
