A picturesque the walk upstream of the River Tweed using well defined grassy/woodland paths/disused railway track and minor roads.

Leaving the pretty Borders town of Peebles, we walk along the riverside path passing Neidpath Castle (the present structure dates back to the late 14th century), before reaching what used to be the Lyne Station.  From there we cross over the River Tweed and pass through the Barns Estate with its 16th/17th century tower and 18th century house.  Back along the south bank of the river then a short, gentle climb (40 meters) to Manor Sware with fantastic views of the River Tweed and beyond.

As parts of the paths are rocky/uneven and can be muddy in places waterproof walking boots recommended.
