The strenuous ascents continue on this section, and you'll have the choice of the official high route or slightly shorter low route as you officially cross the Scotland England border you've been straddling. Enjoy the views from White Law if you've chosen the high route before coming to a triumphant finish at the Border Hotel in Kirk Yetholm.

Turn-by-turn directions

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.
