Peebles is probably one of the most picturesque towns in Scotland. It is also a very popular destination for tourists of all sorts, walkers, mountain bikers… Very beautiful location, a range of little shops and chain eateries make it a great destination for a day out.
With Gentle Jaunts we ventured on a walk which was probably one of the best walks I have ever been.
Starting at the King’s Meadows car park, it follows the Tweed towards Neidpath Castle. Then between the hills, crossing the river and heading back you pass the Barns House with an old tower. A detour will take you through the disused railway tunnel which was much longer than I expected. Generally, it offers spectacular views of the river Tweed, the castle, a couple of old bridges and the hills.
