Walks around Melrose

Twelve circular walks are described here, and vary from short routes exploring local places around the river Tweed to more strenuous hikes into the nearby hills. The walks are waymarked and include much of historical and natural interest. A walk description and notes are provided in the "Paths around Melrose" publication and further information is available from the website links and the Visitor Information Centre in Melrose.

Melrose is an excellent centre for walking and the main features are the Eildon Hills and River Tweed. However there are many other local places to explore; Cauldshiels Loch; Abbotsford Estate and Visitor Centre; the hills above Gattonside; the Bridges over the Tweed at Leaderfoot; and the Leader Water. These paths will help you discover more about this beautiful part of the Borders.
