The second stage of the Scottish National Trail follows the line of Dere Street - an old Roman Road - for many miles before passing through two villages separated by a strech along the mighty River Tweed. LThe route then climbs over the distinctive Eildon Hills before descending to the stunning Abbey and stone buildings of Melrose. This stage - like the first - follows the cross markers of St Cuthbert's Way throughout.
Please watch the video for my guide to the route
I cover approx 15 miles of the trail between my camp spot near Harestanes and my next camp spot on the Eildon Hills above Melrose. I pass through Newton St Boswells en-route where I stop for supplies.
Next : Melrose to Traquair
