Walk through the rolling scenery of the Scottish Borders which offers a touch of Roman history. Leaving St Boswells you follow the River Tweed once more before diverting away from it just before the hamlet of Maxton. After a short section of minor road you then join Dere Street, an ancient Roman Road before reaching your destination.

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.

Very boggy and slippery - lots of stinging nettles to negotiate as well
