Top 5 Walks
FIVE FAMILY-FRIENDLY WALKS
Pack a picnic and get the kids into the great outdoors as you explore easy routes across the Scottish Borders. Some of the trails even have play parks along the way! Here are five great ideas for little legs.
FIVE WALKS WITH GREAT VIEWS
Enjoy the views of the Tweed Valley that so inspired Sir Walter Scott or climb the aptly named Wideopen Hill, the highest point on St Cuthbert’s Way.
FIVE GREAT LONG WALKS
Take your time and take a longer walk exploring the Berwickshire coast or follow the route taken by the horse-riders during the Hawick Common Riding. Follow the John Buchan Way, a trail named after the author of The Thirty-Nine Steps or climb a ‘Donald’!
FIVE WALKS WITH A BIT OF BORDERS HISTORY
Travel back in time and re-visit some famous Borders history. Visit Kelso Abbey founded by King David I in 1128 or take the trail to the childhood home of the famous philosopher David Hume or explore where tales of Black Bob the Border Collie originated.
FIVE EASY ACCESS WALKS
Take in the fresh North Sea air on a gentle stroll on smooth paths near the Berwickshire coastline, or enjoy easy, level walks inland on woodland paths.
