Once there, follow the road for 400m to the bridge over the Yarrow Water and take the idyllic footpath north to the hostel. Once back at Traquair after the walk, take time to have a look at Traquair House, visited by 27 kings and claimed to be the oldest inhabited house in Scotland. The main block dates from 1642. 14 St Mary`s Loch to Kirkhouse FACTFILE Map Ordnance Survey map 73, Peebles, Galashiels & Selkirk Distance 7 miles Height 300m Terrain waymarked track and path all the way Start point car park off A708, east of St Mary’s Loch, map ref 272244 Time 3 to 4 hours Nearest town Innerleithen Recommended refreshment spot Traquair Arms Hotel, Innerleithen 24 Borders The Southern Upland Way (SUW) was Britain’s first official coast-to-coast long distance footpath: a distance of 212 miles from Portpatrick to Cockburnspath with 80 miles crossing the Borders.

It is only a mile there and back to Soutra Hill to the north-east – a raw and bleak spot on a nasty day. Wrap up well. Remember that 368m height translates to over 1200ft. Now for a two and a half mile walk along Dere Street, southeastwards to the Roman camp. Admittedly there is little to see on the ground there, but there are good views to the south. From just south of the car park, leave the road opposite a gate appropriately marked as Dere Street Farm. Head south for King’s Inch, crossing the Armet Water at a clearing in a plantation.

Walking past the wind farm to inspect the remains of the Roman camp by Kirktonhill only whetted my appetite to more closely inspect this modern intrusion on my return. Just before the high point of the A68 on the north side of Soutra Hill, turn off to the southwest on the B6368. After half a mile the Aisle is on the left, but continue 100 yards further on to the sign-posted car park on the right amongst some trees, at map ref 453583. 19 100 SCOTSMAN WALKS Whilst the Aisle is all that is left of this Augustinian Abbey and Hospital that served travellers for centuries, it is not difficult to imagine travellers wearily climbing to over 350m (just by-passing the top of Soutra Hill) and dropping down for a welcome refuge.
