Strenuous 13 miles / 20.9 km
This a coach trip with two walks on offer - see below*
The longer one is the John Buchan Way, a 13mile linear walk from Broughton to Peebles. The way marked route which is quite exposed, follows long established hill tracks. There are three main ascents and descents giving a total climb of 800m but none of them are too severe. John Buchan (1875-1960), author and statesman, has many associations with the area.
Please note that because of the length of the walk, the pace will be fairly fast.
* Please reserve your space on the coach before contacting the walk leader. Email Gerard or email@example.com
