Coldstream and the Tweed, Coldstream

Follow the banks of the mighty River Tweed which forms the Scottish - English Border on this lower stretch and provides a home for leaping Salmon, Heron, Oystercatchers and Cormorant. This straightforward walk uses some of the woodland paths that encircle Coldstream and gives a flavour of the town's history. Coldstream has a historical association with the Coldstream Guards who have links with the town dating back to 1660 when General Monk set off from the town on his march to London to restore the Stuart throne.


Main paths, riverside and woodland paths and tracks. Some of the ground can be quite muddy in wet weather.
