Borders Abbeys Way Cicerone Walking Guidebook

author: Paul Boobyer
The Borders Abbeys Way is a 68-mile (109km) circuit that connects four of Britain's grandest ruined medieval abbeys in the stunning landscape of the Scottish Borders. The route is a well waymarked and is one of Scotland's Great Trails.

The route which begins and ends in Tweedbank, is described clockwise over 6 stages averaging 11.3 miles per day. Relatively flat, it is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness. The Way can be walked at any time of year and can be completed as a series of stand-alone day walks or as a contiguous six stage walking holiday. The start can be reached within an hour by train from the centre of Edinburgh.

This guidebook provides a comprehensive description of the route, which passes through the towns of Melrose, Kelso, Jedburgh, Hawick and Selkirk and the villages of Denholm and Newton St Boswells. In addition to clear route description and OS 1:50,000 mapping extracts, the guidebook also includes information about the history of the Borders abbeys, the ever-intriguing Borders reivers, and the region's geology and agriculture. Invaluable practical information relating to accommodation, transport, mapping, and public access is also included.

The six stages are
Tweedbank to Newtown St Boswells via Melrose
Newtown St Boswells to Kelso
