Overview

We start in St Boswells and walk upstream to the pretty pedestrian bridge near Dryburgh Abbey, then downstream, walking under the Merton bridge to Merton House, where we cross over the Wobbly bridge. Now upstream, via Maxton Kirk and the golf course back to the start. A few sets of steps and minor slopes included. Walk can be shortened to either 5.5 miles or 8.5 miles if anyone wishes a shorter walk. In both cases, the last 1.5miles will be on their own but with detailed and very easy route back to start point.
