Ranald & Louise on a Recce
Border Reivers - 7 April 2019
year we took you back to Roman times with the tour along Hadrian's
wall. This year we continue our journey back in time taking you across
the area frequented by the marauding Border Reivers in the 13th
century. We will drive some little-known roads that explore the
Scottish Borders from west to east, broadly following the Tweed
watershed, passing along and across some old “drove roads”. Club
members and organisers Ranald Bruce and Louise Wall use their
knowledge of their once home area to create this great route.
once more just south of Edinburgh, this time at Eddleston (near our
last year finish), this run will head south west deep into the Borders
before heading east along the Scottish Borders trails; over the hills
of the southern uplands; through some of the many river valleys on our
way to a pre-arranged lunch stop.
refreshed we will continue heading east crossing Rivers Teviot, Tweed
and many of the tributary 'waters' feeding these great rivers. Ranald
has arranged our route to take in a special surprise, more details to follow. Our
final section heads north toward the mighty River Forth where our
finish location will offer a celebration meal, awards, and a time to
chat with fellow 'Reivers'.
