The Borders Abbeys Way

The Scottish Borders is an area which is rich in history as this part of Scotland bore witness to numerous disputes, battles and occupation over the centuries. 

One of the best ways to explore this rich and intriguing history is by walking the 64.5-mile Borders Abbeys Way over the course of five days. The route links the four magnificent ruined abbeys of Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh and also the Borders towns of Hawick and Selkirk to return to Melrose.
