The day starts with a steep climb of the Eildon Hills which is rewarded by fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. You may also choose to climb from the saddle to the summit at 422m if you are feeling energetic. From the saddle the way drops steadily through Bowden and then along Bowden Burn to Newton St Boswells, which has refreshments available. Shortly after leaving the town you re-join the River Tweed and follow it to St Boswells. If you are staying in St Boswells, Dryburgh Abbey makes for a very pleasant side trip.

Sicherheitshinweise

If there are any stretches of road walking and if there is no pavement or grass verge, please take extra care. The general rule is that you walk on the same side of the road as oncoming traffic, in order to avoid having your back directly to oncoming traffic. Be prepared to walk in single file and to stay as close to the side of the road as possible.

There may be sections where you will be walking through fields containing livestock.  Be vigilant and respectful of all animals.

Wegbeschreibung

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

Ausrüstung

We recommend sturdy waterproof boots or shoes with ankle support that are well broken in at all times of the season – steep steps, exposed roots and (if wet) slippery rocks can pose a risk.

Along with your usual kit for a day walking in the elements make sure you pack an extra layer, a full set of waterproof and windproof layers along with a hat, gloves and neck scarf (e.g. a Buff) in case the weather closes in. Suncream and midge repellent spray is also a good idea for the summer months!

Difficult climb up into the hills! Beautiful hike along the Tweed. What a wonderful river!
