 The path starts near the southern side of the main squarein Melrose. Take the b6359, go under the by-pass bridge and the path is signposted at a small alley that takes you through some houses up some wooden steps and onto an open field and then through a kissing gate.

Basically from the kissing gate just follow the path as it leads to a saddle between Eildon North Hill and Eildon Mid Hill, scale the two hills if have time but Mid Hill, for me, has the better views. The third hill is somewhat smaller but has easy paths from the other two hills.
