Product Description


Covering the border hills, northern Northumberland and the Southern Uplands, this full-colour third edition of the guide offers a broad selection of around 50 routes, as well as outlining a number of long-distance trails which cross the region. The Border country that lies between England and Scotland is a countryside surrounded by ridge after high ridge rythmically fading into gently folding valleys, through which the Tweed and Teviot rivers flow. The area has been the scene of thousands of years of turbulent history, from the early Iron Age, through the Roman occupation, with influences down the years of both Celtic and Christian beliefs.

The guide offers the hillwalker routes which will open up this broad and expansive landscape, giving a real taste of solitude and affinity with this unique area.
