The Scottish Borders : 40 Favourite Walks
The Scottish Borders cover a vast area, stretching from the east coast to rural Dumfriesshire and from the more populous Lothians to the border with England.
Although there are no very high mountains, the Borders have always attracted walkers keen to explore the quiet moorlands, rolling hills, ancient woodland and rugged coast, as well as the romantic ruins of abbeys and castles, grand estates and rich literary heritage of the area.
Ancient native tribes and Roman legions left their mark on this landscape, as did years of fierce warfare with our southern neighbours and raiding by ruthless Border Reivers.
These 40 walks will introduce you to some of the fascinating history which shaped this most intriguing, as well as beautiful region.
