A most attractive and emotive circular up to Tibbie’s grave (buried by the people of Selkirk in 1790, possibly a suicide) through woodland and farmland.

This route starts on the Corbie Linn track that is lined with a magnificent stand of Douglas fir. Corbie is a Scot’s word for crow. Near the rservoir the landcsape opens up crowned with the hills along the Minch Moor. There is an option to go out to the summit of Harehead Hill.
