Walking in the Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders offers some of the most beautiful walking scenery in Scotland

and Selkirk is right in the heart of it all.

With an abundance of local walks available including



The Duchess Drive (7 miles) on the nearby Bowhill Estate

(home to the Duke of Buccleuch)

A 4 mile trek up to the local 3 Brethren

Take in a part of the Southern Upland Way

Start your journey from here for the Borders Abbeys Way

so much choice.....you decide how strenuous!




There's so much to do and so many walks available you certainly won't fit everything into just one visit, and with Autumn now upon us there's a plethora of colour changing developing as we move towards winter.



This 64 mile circular walk takes in the 4 Abbeys to be found locally at Melrose, Jedburgh, Kelso and Dryburgh as well as the short lived Tironsian Abbey in Selkirk.

Many walkers stay with us every year, en route around the Abbeys Way but we are now introducing a package whereby walkers can stay at The Glen Hotel, here in Selkirk, making this their base for their 4 or 5 day break and we will arrange transportation for you each day to continue your walk around the Abbeys Way.

No more repacking of baggage every day......simply check in, unpack and forget about moving

until your planned departure.

Every day after breakfast we will take you to the next leg of your walk.....then collect you at a time to suit you in the early evening at your next destination to bring you back for a hot shower or a soak in the bath before enjoying a well deserved drink before your home cooked evening meal from our a la carte menu!
