Hardens Hill circular, Duns

Starting and finishing from the market town of Duns this long circular route starts and finishes in the parkland around the castle but takes you on forest paths and into the surrounding rolling hills for a close encounter with wind turbines. There are good views of the Cheviots and the Eildons and plenty of opportunity to spot wildlife, from the array of birds and maybe a squirrel in the reserve to pheasant, grouse, rabbits and hares on hills and maybe a deer in the forest. This is a long walk which can be easily be shortened if desired.


Very varied with tarmaced roads and paths, woodland paths and tracks and open hillside, over rough and sometimes boggy ground. Short stretches can be boggy even when the weather has been dry.
