Photo - Caberston and Pirn Hill

This is a conifer forest with an important broadleaf wood at the Pirn.

An uphill climb takes you on a circuit of Pirn Hill where there is a 2000 year old Iron Age settlement site at the top of the forest walk. This short walk onto the Pirn hillfort gives you some fantastic views of the Tweed valley.

Carved sandstone sculptures by local artist, Mary Kenny depict the interesting history of the town and the hill.

The Tweed Valley Forest Park lies in the main woodland corridor between Peebles and Selkirk and boasts some fabulous visitor attractions.

Scottish Borders

This is a region which is drenched in the blood of countless battles with the English, and its many ruined castles and abbeys bear witness to this. It also has inspired the country's greatest poets and writers such as Robert Burns, John Buchan and Sir Walter Scott. The wildest and most spectacular scenery is to be found in the southern part of the region, but it is along the central valley of the River Tweed, between Peebles in the west and Kelso in the east, where you'll find most of the historic attractions. The hill walking and spa-town atmosphere of Peebles is recommended.
