Borders walks

The Border country - so often bypassed by visitors from outside Scotland - is a real delight on closer acquaintance. Here are fertile pastures, beautiful valleys and range after range of rolling green hills, all fringed by a fine coastline - ideal country for the walker. The area is crossed by a multitude of paths and three excellent long distance routes.

Not the least of the attractions in the Borders are the characterful country towns such as Kelso, Melrose and Peebles, packed with good pubs. There is plenty of wider interest too, from the romantic ruins of the Borders Abbeys to medieval castles and some grand stately homes.
