Route Outline

This Scottish Borders walk visits the summits of fine hills located either side of the Yarrow Valley which lies either side of the A708 a few miles west of Selkirk. The route is followed in a clockwise direction and should take about seven hours. Paths are indistinct, but sheep tend to choose the best route and they have made many trods across the hillsides.
