Following the Southern Upland Way for the first part of the walk, this long walk through the area behind Lauder, partially known as Lambs’ Moor. While heading through the vast lands, slowly going up and down the rolling hills there are not mayor hills on the route until you reach the summit of Dabshead Hill, which is still not a hard hill to climb.

The challenge of this route lies in the distance, which is to walk, though the book said 20km when tracking the route, we reached about 22.5km. The nice part here was that for almost the whole way you are walking on tracks or paths, barely on the street, if you compare it to the length walked on paths etc.

Who is not afraid of distance walking and enjoys some nice views over the wide landscape of the Scottish Borders, this walk is definitely a very good option, varying a lot in-between and offering much to see while enjoying the nature surrounding you on each step you take.

A solid 5 out of 5 for this route, for the great time we had walking it and enjoying a very mild Scottish winter day, with no rain till we reached Dabshead Hill, relatively close to the end of the route.
