Caberston Forest is located next to the Leithen Water to the north of Innverleithen..
The Iron Age fort site atop Pirn Hill in Caberston forest is just one of several similar sites spread across the Tweed Valley, which afforded ancient inhabitants some protection and means of early warning in times of trouble. Today the hills offer excellent waymarked trails and the same fantastic views.
The most popular walk here involves a circuit around Pirn Hill, which can be extended to take in the 2000 year old Iron Age settlement site on its summit. Seven carved sandstone sculptures, by local artist Mary Kenny, depicting the history of nearby Innerleithen and the hill, can also be found by the summit.
From Innerleithen High Street (A72), take the B709 (starting at the Bank of Scotland). Parking is on the right hand side, and the access footpath starts a few metres from this car park, entering the forest via the stone bridge.
