This section of St Cuthbert's Way has an initial stretch beside the River Teviot before crossing rolling farmland and fields to the castle at Cessford. Roadwalking leads on to the village of Morebattle before the climb to Wideopen Hill - a fine ridgewalk with superb views. The stage ends at the attractive village of Kirk Yetholm. Although the route sounds complex it is very well waymarked.


Waymarked paths and tracks, can be muddy in fields. Some sections on minor roads; traverse of Wideopen Hill involves a steep climb and is more exposed in poor weather.
