The Scottish Borders is renowned for its walking and exploring the mountains and hills of this wonderful region is an extremely rewarding experience.

With a wide range of walking routes that suit all abilities and interests, a walk that travels through the mountains and hills of the Scottish Borders is the perfect way to get away from it all and enjoy the great outdoors.

The magnificent Eildon Hills have strong connections with Arthurian legend, with it being said that the king and his knights once hid in a chamber with the hills. Nearby, you can visit the romantic Rhymer's Stone, where Thomas the Rhymer is fabled to have met the Faerie Queen who granted him the supernatural gift of prophecy.

Make your way to the favourite viewpoint of the writer, Sir Walter Scott, in the Eildon Hills - a stunning panaroma now known as Scott's View.

Take a brisk hike up the windswept Ruberslaw or heather-clad Lammermuirs for magnificent views that set this region apart as a walking destination.
