Walking The Borders Abbeys Way

Walking The Borders Abbeys Way

Taking in four of Britain's grandest ruined medieval abbeys, the route which begins and ends in Tweedbank, is described over 6 stages, and is as rich in history as it is pastoral charm. Relatively flat, it is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness, and can be undertaken at any time of year.

In addition to clear route description and OS mapping extracts, the guidebook also includes information about the history of the Borders abbeys, the ever-intriguing Borders reivers, and the region's geology and agriculture. Invaluable practical information relating to accommodation, transport, mapping and public access is also included.

As historically enchanting as it is visually delightful, the Borders Abbeys Way will connect walkers with a truly fascinating period of history. In fact, some of the paths on the Way are the very same routes that monks used to travel between the Borders abbeys, and no doubt were also used by the notorious reivers.
