The abbeys of Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders
By Paul Boobyer
Guidebook to the Borders Abbeys Way, a 68 mile circuit in the Scottish Borders, taking in 4 of Britain's grandest ruined medieval abbeys. Beginning and ending in Tweedbank, the route, which is described over 6 stages, is as rich in history as it is in pastoral charm. Relatively flat, it is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness.
SeasonsThis multi-day walk can be done at any time of year, although between early spring and the end of autumn you will have more hours of daylight.
CentresMelrose, Newtown St Boswells, Kelso, Jedburgh, Denholm, Hawick and Selkirk.
DifficultyLow level and easy walking on the first three stages. The following three stages involve some inclines, but none that are demanding for people with a moderate level of fitness. Most of the route is off-road, but there are some stretches along quiet, minor roads.
Must SeeA circuit incorporating four of Scotland's most impressive ruined medieval abbeys. Follow in the monks' footsteps on riverside paths, forest tracks and open hills where great views abound. This route traverses part of the Tweed Valley before heading up to rolling hills. The variety of terrain will delight any walker.
