Ettrick Hills horseshoe

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The green rounded hills at the head of the Ettrick valley offer pleasant walking in a very quiet area. This fine undulating circuit is fairly easy to follow thanks to the ever-present boundary fences.


Forest tracks at the start and finish. Faint paths on the tops but mostly sound going over grassy slopes and only a few softer sections.

Public Transport

None to start.


Head of Ettrick Valley. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
