Eildon Hills Circuit
This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.
Visible throughout the Scottish Borders, the Eildons are magical hills associated with Tam Lin, The Queen of Elfland, Merlin, Thomas The Rhymer and King Arthur, to name but a few. Our walk starts at Melrose Abbey and climbs easily for a magnificent panorama of the entire region. Start and finish are shared with the St Cuthbert's Way. We climb each of the three hills - named Trimontium by the Romans, who established a signal station here - and although the height gain is a modest 300m the views are outstanding.
