The Sware Circuit

Walking Route

The Sware Circuit


This circular route follows the River Tweed before going over the lower Manor Bridges and passes the viewpoints on The Sware road.

The Sware road was closed to vehicular traffic in recent years because the Old Manor Brig is not strong enough. However, take care because cars still drive up to the viewpoints.
