Walk the most extensive area of rolling hill country in the UK is waiting to be explored. Join a trek along the Southern Uplands Way, Scotland’s ‘coast to coast’ route, stretching across the country to end at Cockburnspath. Try the shorter St Cuthbert’s Way which starts at Melrose and ventures across the Border. Alternatively, choose a short break or day walk to explore the Border Abbeys Way, Buchan Way, or one of the many wonderful hill routes which criss-cross the area. You’ll not be disappointed.
