The Scottish Borders 40 Favourite Walks Pocket Guidebook

The Scottish Borders 40 Favourite Walks Pocket Guidebook

by: Robbie Porteous
The Scottish Borders cover a vast area, stretching from the east coast to rural Dumfriesshire, and from the more populous Lothians to the border with England. Although there are no very high mountains, the borders have always attracted walkers keen to explore the quiet moorlands, rolling hills, ancient woodlands and rugged coast, as well as the romantic ruins of abbeys and castles, grand estates and rich literary heritage of the area.

Ancient native tribes and Roman Legions left their mark on this landscape, as did years of fierce warfare with southern neighbours and raiding by ruthless Border Reivers. These 40 walks will introduce you to some of the fascinating history which shaped this most intriguing as well as beautiful region.

The walks in this handy pocket guide vary in length from 3km to 17.5km. Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, parking and public transport access. Clear route finding instructions follow together with coloured overview sketch maps. The text also includes brief notes on features of interest along the way.
