Sunday 29th September 2019 - Coach Walk - Hawick -Rosehill: 8.50am - Sands: 9.00am

Followed by Dinner - The Eskdale Hotel - Langholm


This is not an overly-challenging A walk, starting in the village of Denholm and climbing to the 424 metre summit of the volcanic stump of Rubers Law, a height gain of some 330 metres.  Beginning on the Borders Abbeys Way, the route takes us through Denholmhill Wood, the intriguingly named Gled'swing Strip  and Ruberslaw Covert before emerging on the open hillside for the final ascent.  From the trig point we are treated to an amazing 360 degree panorama of the Scottish Borders (weather permitting!).


A more direct descent to Denholm leads us back to the Borders Abbeys Way, where we set off up the left bank of the River Teviot to Hawick, in hot pursuit of the C party!

A Walk

Denholm to Hawick via Rubers Law

11 Miles Grade 3

Leader: Ken Halliday

Coach Walk-Rosehill:8.50am-Sands:9.00am



















Coach Walk:Rosehill:8.50am - Sands:9.00am




This is a straightforward walk with no hard ascents or other difficulties.  There are half a dozen stiles, all well-constructed.  We walk on a mix of riverside paths, field paths and one long stretch of country road before finishing on the streets of Hawick to board the coach.


The walk begins on the green in the charming village of Denholm and follows the left bank of the River Teviot along a stretch of the Borders Abbeys Way to Hawick.  The pace will be gentle, and there should be plenty of time for refreshments in Hawick before taking the coach to Langholm for our meal.






Car Walk: Sands 9.15am

We will meet at 9.45 am at the Kilngreen car park where there are free toilets. This is a circular walk. We begin by climbing steadily up Whita Hill, 355m, admiring the views in all directions. After admiring the memorial to Sir John Malcolm, otherwise known as The Monument, we follow the track down to the memorial to the poet, Hugh Macdiarmid. Then we walk downhill on the single track road before turning right and descending to the High Mill Bridge over the Ewes Water. We cross the bridge and follow the Bagra track  and then onto the lower slopes of Castle Hill before descending to Holmhead and the Duchess Bridge. Refreshments await us at the Buccleuch Centre.
