Kirkpatrick C2C – Duns Spur

Cycling Route

Kirkpatrick C2C – Duns Spur


This 19-mile long spur takes you away from the core Kirkpatrick C2C route for a short distance and brings you to the town of Duns.

In the town itself you will find the Jim Clark Museum devoted to Scotland’s first, and double, Formula One World Champion. Discover his cars and trophies, or even jump into the driving seat in the simulator!

Just to the north of the town, lies the hill of Duns Law, offering spectacular views of the surrounding rural landscapes rolling out to the coast. Atop the hill sit the remains of an Iron Age Hillfort where the town originally sat. Duns Law is also where the original Duns Castle was built by a nephew of Robert the Bruce in 1320. The estate is now a park and bird sanctuary.
