The Tweed

£6.99

One of the world’s great salmon rivers, the Tweed cuts through the heart of the Scottish Borders and, in part, forms the historic boundary between Scotland and England. Rising in the rolling hills near Moffat, it weaves through a cherished landscape on its way to Berwick-upon-Tweed and the North Sea, passing through the proud Border towns of Peebles, Galashiels, Melrose, Kelso and Coldstream on the way.

There is no better way to discover the wildlife, architecture and history of this area of Scotland than to walk. Whatever your ability – walking at high or low level, following tough terrain or level paths – the 25 routes in this guide offer something for everyone.

The Tweed

Rivers have been at the centre of Scottish life for thousands of years. For the earliest settlers a river meant survival – a source of food, drinking water and transport. Over the centuries villages, towns and all of Scotland’s cities have grown and developed along the banks of a river. From the Industrial Revolution, when Scotland was one of the manufacturing powerhouses of Europe, until the long decline of heavy industry in the 20th century, rivers were integral to Scotland’s economic development. As towns and cities attempt to reinvent themselves in the wake of that decline, rivers and riverbanks are crucial to regeneration, providing key destinations for residential developments, offices, leisure and recreation.
