Kelso to Jedburgh

Walking Route

Kelso to Jedburgh


This is one of five sections of the Borders Abbeys Way and is a fairly flat and reasonably easy route, largely beside the River Teviot.

There is one moderate climb towards the end of the section along the Roman Road, Dere Street, followed by a gradual descent into Jedburgh.

This circular route also follows The Rivers Tweed and Teviot and the waters Jed and Ale in part. The multi-day route is divided into five sections, however, you can divide it into sections to suit yourself. This section may be done in two shorter walks between Kalemouth and Kelso and Kalemouth and Jedburgh. Take the bus to the junction of the A698 and the B6401 near Teviot Water Gardens and walk along the road to join the route back to your start point.
