Walked in the Eildons on a scorching July day. Great views. Wild blueberries everywhere- delicious. Clear paths, well signposted, had a perfect day.

What a beautiful place for a walk. Trek to the top of all 3 Eildon’s and you will have had an amazing view of the borders. A steep climb but the views on a clear day are breathtaking and I never get tired of the...More

Lovely walk and not too steep if you go from the Bowden village side. Wonderful views from the top that make the climb worthwhile

Stayed in a holiday property looking out onto the Eildon Hills. Beautiful scenery whatever the weather. A landmark that can be seen for miles and the colours are constantly changing with the light.

These hills take around 3hours for those who are not used to climbing hills. It took us an hour to climb the middle one and when we reached the top the views were brilliant.
