Gavinton and Fogo

About This Route

This is a linear route 4 1/2 miles in length so you will be covering double that distance if you walk back to Duns; a good way to explore these settlements on a cycle. Gavinton is an example of a development by an improving landlord; he created the settlement in 1760. Fogo village has created a short circular walk over the Blackadder Water for your enjoyment.
