Leisurely 7.6 miles / 12.2 km
Sunday 13th October – An easy leisurely 7.6 mile figure of eight walk starting at the cyclists car park, Traquair road, Innerleithen - NT335 357 – EH44 6PW (this is a little to the south-west).
Come for the full walk or just for one section of the walk.
Before lunch a lovely if a little bit muddy (walking boots strongly advised) walk along the Tweed to Walkerburn and back. A short section of road at the start then down along the south river bank and back along the north river bank (using only a short section of the cycle path to avoid a very muddy bit under the footbridge). Some horses and a small number of cattle may be encountered but this is a frequently walked path and we were roundly ignored on our recce.
After lunch back at the car park we will then set out with a short climb up the new path along the edge of the forest, with lovely views across the valley, before descending down a section of the SUW to pick up the new path through the grounds of the Traquair estate back to the car park. Good paths all the way.
After walk tea and cake is available from recently discovered café Sitooterie, Caddon View, Innerleithen (parking available)
