Walks

The two planned walks on the Estate provide an opportunity for you to enjoy one of the most beautiful landscapes in Scotland.

Woodland walks

Wandering through the woodland of Floors Castle, you may hear the characteristic knocking sound of the greater spotted wood peckers while tree creepers, goldcrests, tawny owls and red squirrels can often been seen. 

The woodlands are home to many magnificent mature oak, lime and beech and a line of sweet chestnut which survive from Daniel Defoe’s visit to the Estate in the 18th century.

This walk will take approximately an hour starting in front of the Castle and finishing at the Terrace Café.

Riverside walk

As you walk along the banks of the River Tweed, you will have the chance to see oyster catchers, herons and green plovers feeding at the water’s edge. You may see a fisherman wading in the river or a family of otters sun bathing on the banks. Watch the river closely for the tell-tale ripple formed as trout feed on insects – a lucky few have even seen the salmon jumping through the water.

Along the Riverside Walk, you will also be able to enjoy our beautiful parkland in which some of the Estate’s sheep and cattle graze. Look out for the holly tree that marks the spot where King James II was killed when his canon back fired.

The Riverside Walk takes approximately an hour and half starting at the Castle and finishing at the Terrace Café.
