The Southern Upland Way. Britain’s first official coast to coast path.

A journey that has a great variety of scenery some sections are long and challenging, some are ideal for families and the less ambitious. Take it fast slow or just do circular walks from a base.

We are less than 2km from the Southern Upland Way and make a great stop off point , with facilities to wash and clean kit if you have been roughing it for some of the trip. We can offer baggage transfer too by arrangement to your next night’s accommodation, for a nominal fee. Do not forget that there are some great circular walks based on the SUW so we make a great base to explore it too!
Cleikum Mill is a stroll to shops, pubs and cafes so a great stop off point on this great route. We are a bit biased and think the most scenic sections are near to us!
We have lots of information to help you plan a variety of circular walks using the Southern Upland Way and the surrounding hills and forests of the Tweed Valley Forest Park with seven forests along the river meandering down the Tweed Valley.
