St Mary's Loch to Traquair

A shorter section that should provide a welcome break after the last few days. Experienced walkers should complete the section in half a day giving time to explore Traquair and it's historic country house or to continue into Innerleithen for a wider range of accommodation and services.
The section starts off along the side of St Mary's Loch, Scotltish Border's largest inland loch. It then heads cross-country through the hills before descending into the Tweed valley and joining a minor road into Traquair. From here you can walk the 1.5 miles into Innerleithen
