Guidebook presenting 45 day walks and one long distance route in the Scottish Borders. The day walks cover five areas: the Cheviots, Tweeddale, the Ettrick Hills, Moffat Hills and Manor Hills. The walks are a mixture of high and low level routes and can be fully customised using multiple variants.
Year-round. For hillwalking, the best times of all are April-June and September. Winter hillwalking under snow can be arduous, but very rewarding in good conditions and if correctly prepared and equipped.
