Borders Abbeys Way - Rucksack Readers


The Borders Abbeys Way is one of Scotland's Great Trails, a fascinating circuit that takes in the historic ruined abbeys of Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh. Within its 67 miles (108 km) it includes also the charming towns of Hawick and Selkirk, and passes Abbotsford House, the historic home of Sir Walter Scott.
