Another day walking along Roman roads and over the ancient bridges with pleasant views of the Cheviots leading you to Cessford Castle.

Leaving Harestanes, you cross the driveway of Monteviot House and the River Teviot by a bridge, which replaces the one swept away in 1997. Passing the junction of the Teviot and Jed Water, you once again join Dere Street. As the road rises and falls in its determination to keep in a straight line, pleasant vistas of the Cheviots open up and your path now leads you to the remains of Cessford Castle.

From here to Morebattle the route allows the opportunity to study the flora and fauna of the area, including the lovely little purple flower, meadow cranes bill.

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.

Some hard, steep climbing to begin the walk today. scenery did not compare to day 1 along the Tweed, but pleasant enough.
