There is plenty to explore amongst the estate woodlands and many tracks and trails in and around the picturesque Borders countryside. For ease of finding your way around, maps and information are available at the hotel.
Visit Scotland have a number of cycling holidays around Scotland of varying grades to suit beginners and more experienced cyclists. One local route you may like to try is a route between Kelso and Duns.
This 17 mile cycle route can be enjoyed by anyone, from novices to enthusiasts.
Cycling around Kelso
Our Kelso Cycling Map from Borders Council describes THREE CYCLE ROUTES, all starting from Kelso.
These mostly use quiet unclassified or B class roads, although the yellow trail uses two miles of relatively busy A class road as a return route into the town.
The landscapes around Kelso are very pleasant - rolling agricultural countryside interspersed with mixed woodland and no lack of peace and quiet.
If the adjective 'rolling' suggests that the trails involves some hill climbing, then this is definitely the case in this region - however there are many rewards in the form of fine views, great panoramas and exhilarating downhill runs.
Cycling in the Borders
Also featured are TWO CYCLE ROUTES starting at Yetholm for those looking for a shorter, more relaxed cycling experience.
In addition to the Kelso Cycling Routes the Borders Council has published FOUR other Cycle maps covering a selection of diverse cycle routes within the Borders Region.
