About Rhymer’s Route

Although quite a long route there is an interesting variety of terrain from town to hill to farmland and woodland. The sections over the Eildons and Cauldshiels Hill have steep ascents and descents. You can also stop for a moment at the Rhymer’s Stone; Thomas Rhymer was spirited away by the fairies according to folklore.
Some stretches can be muddy. Steep gradients in places. Boots or walking shoes are recommended.
