    Today’s the big day - the border crossing to Bonnie Scotland! You’ll tackle no less than 54 miles (87km) as you firstly head West, climbing out of Kielder Forest Park and across into the Scottish Borders. Don’t expect a fanfare, bagpipes and haggis just yet, the crossing is a very minimal affair.

    The route heads to the Borders town of Hawick via the gradual Leap Hill, before climbing the steeper Drinkstone Hill and Grain Hill. Pass through Ashkirk before the last, and biggest, climb of the day before Innerleithen. This takes you up to Minch Moor at 1702 feet (519m) before a wicked descent into the town which you will love - makes all that climbing well worth it.

    Enjoy your brief stay in Innerleithen, a town that really does thrive on the outdoor spirit. There are plenty of accommodation options here from camping to hotels, hostels and guest houses, but make sure you book ahead, especially in the busy summer months.
