A footbridge over the Kale takes you into fields and over the stiles with fine views back over to Morebattle to the Eildons Hills on the horizon.
At this point comes one of the steepest climbs of the whole walk to the top of Wideopen Hill, with more spectacular views towards Yetholm and its loch. Downhill from here takes you into the valley of Bowmont Water and into Kirk Yetholm. Here there are fine thatched cottages, reminders of its origins as a farm township, and it is also home to the north end of the Pennine Way, which starts in Edale in Derbyshire, some 270 miles away.
