Borders Abbeys Way
108 km / 67 miles
A circular route passing the sites and ruins of 12th Century Abbeys and opening up the beauty of the Scottish Borderland. This Way Is steeped in 12th Century history: the time when the Border Abbeys were first established and granted their Royal Charters. The monks knew how to select prime locations, next to the River Tweed and Teviot for their Salmon fishing, and in the fertile plains below the Eildon Hills. The Way starts at Kelso and visits Jedburgh, Hawick, Selkirk and Melrose before returning to Kelso via Dryburgh Abbey.
