Eildon Hills Path

Walking

Although not a long circular this route has steep sections on the Eildons. The options to summit Eildon Mid Hill and Eildon Wester Hill naturally increase the length and height gained.

The Eildon Hills are an iconic part of the Scottish Borders landscape. The views from their tops are stunning allowing the observer on a clear day to look out to the Lammermuirs, Moorfoots and Upper Tweeddale Hills.
