An enjoyable circular exploring the north-east area of the town following old tracks with great views of Selkirk Town.

This route passes the high school and Pringle Park before moving on to farmland where you will be on old tracks by hedgerows teaming with small birds and old dry-stane dykes patterned with lichen. There is an option to extend your walk and visit Lindean Church’s ruins.
