River Tweed and Lees circuit, Coldstream

This is an extremely picturesque walk that takes you along the banks of the River Tweed which forms the Scottish - English Border and provides a home for leaping Salmon, Heron, Oystercatchers and Cormorant. It is a straightforward route providing good views back to the town and some of the way uses the tops of water dykes that were constructed by prisoners during the Napoleonic war. There are plenty of places to take on refreshments in the town and there are public toilets in the car park.


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