Hen Poo and Colonel's Walk
About This Route
This circular follows two established routes through the Duns Castle Estate and includes the attractive Hen Poo Loch that is managed as a wildlife reserve. Duns Castle was erected in the 14th century by Robert the Bruce’s nephew, the Earl of Moray, and has been the seat of the Hay family since 1696. Each generation has enlarged and embellished the original tower transforming it into the castle that we see today.
