Venlaw and Soonhope

About This Route

A short circular with a big punch (it feels longer than it actually is) in a popular glen in Peebles due to great views south over to Hundleshope Heights; includes a short steep climb and descent. Look out for the eccentric line of holiday huts on the east side. You may choose to do the longer Venlaw circuit which also follows good tracks through forestry.
