Melrose to Traquair

After a short stretch along the beautiful River Tweed, the trail takes a complex path on the valley slopes above Galashiels. After climbing over an intervening hiil, there is a scenic ridge walk through forests and over high moorland hills to Traquair.


Good paths and tracks throughout. Grazing animals in places - keep dogs under tight control.
