We did the Eildon Hills from the car park in Melrose. Very muddy slippy boggy paths but it had been very wet. Fantastic views from the summits of Eildon mid and north. We did the circular on the last days of march with fantastic weather...More

We did the walk from the Eildon hills in Melrose to the Harestanes visitor centre near Jedburgh. Whilst we didn't do the full route this was still very memorable. It was lovely following the banks of the Tweed and seeing Herons swooping down on the...More
