About the walk
Initially taking the Southern Upland
Way out of Galashiels and over the
hill to the historic Yair Bridge, the
route then follows the banks of the
River Tweed to its confluence with
the Ettrick Water, passing Boleside
(famous for its salmon fishing) and
Abbotsford. Skirting Tweedbank
and Darnick, the route rejoins the
SUW riverside path to return to
