About This Route

A long linear route between Peebles and Broughton through the hills and valleys of Tweeddale. Although this route is sign-posted it is advisable to take an ordnance survey map as well. The most prominent hills are near Stobo Hope head – Penvalla and Hammer Head. John Buchan is one of Tweeddale’s most famous sons and you can also learn about his story in the small museum dedicated to his life on Peebles High Street.
