Hillwalking Eildon Hills - Scottish Walks.
|Length: 3 mile||Duration: 4 Hours.|
|The Eildon Hills or Trimontium ( 3 hills ) as they were known to our Roman friends of yesteryear, can provide even your novice hillwalker with a good 4 hrs exercise and entertainment. Eildon Hills is situated between Melrose & Newtown St Boswells in the Scottish Borders.|
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
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.|
