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.
