About the walk
This is a short circular walk leading
across the River Tweed to explore
Gattonside Village and its
surroundings. The route goes along
the riverside path past St. Aidanís.
There is then a short climb up to
Gattonside Mains with fine views to
the south over Melrose and the
Eildons and then gently downhill
through the narrow lanes between
old cottages in Gattonside, back to
the Chain Bridge and Melrose. It is
hoped to provide tea in Gattonside
