This booklet describes 12 routes in the Galashiels area, most of which have links into the town centre. The routes are especially suitable for walkers. Other users may not be able to use all parts of the routes where there are steps or stiles. Three of the walks are in the settlements of Clovenfords and Caddonfoot and two of the longer walks go through the farms whose hills overlook these places. There are a variety of routes ranging from short walks in woodlands and around lochs to long hikes over the moors and hills. Each route has a summary containing distance, time taken and terrain. This information will allow you to choose the most suitable route at a quick glance. The fact that Galashiels is built in a valley means that on many of the routes there are spectacular views of the hills. On clear days the views extend far beyond the valley town and the neighbouring villages, for example, to the Moorfoot Hills, sitting north west of the town.
