About Cross Borders Drove Road

From the car park, follow the signed footpath over the footbridge at Gala Ford to the clearly waymarked old drove road which leads up the hill to the Cauldstane Slap.
Steeped in history, the 52 mile Cross Borders Drove Road is a truly fantastic route for walkers, cyclists or horse-riders,offering great variety in terms of scenery, surfacing, cultural and other interest. As its name implies, the route follows sections of former drove road between Harperrig, on the A70 (Lang Whang) south-west of Edinburgh, over the Cauldstane Slap - the pass over the Pentland Hills - through West Linton to Peebles and Traquair, and onward via the Yarrow Valley to Hawick.
