Robbie Porteous - The Scottish Borders (40 Favourite Walks) (New Softback)
"Breathes there the man with soul so dead. Who never to himself hath said. This is my own, my native land." - Sir Walter Scott.
Containing more than forty colour photographs and sketch maps, this book features forty short walks in and around the Scottish Borders.
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 woodlands 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.
There are also several long-distance walking trails which traverse the region, including The Southern Upland Way, The Borders Abbeys Way, St Cuthbert’s Way and the Berwickshire Coastal Path, which link together many Border towns. This guide contains 40 routes, the majority offering easy to moderate walks, with a few more challenging hikes to the top of higher hills.
These 40 walks will introduce you to some of the fascinating history which shaped this most intriguing, as well as beautiful, region.
