Neidpath Castle & the Tweed walk, Peebles

Come & join Toby (Lhasa Apso) and me, for a Saturday stroll in Peebles.
Set between the Moorfoots and the Southern Uplands, Peebles provides a range of walks to suit all tastes and abilities. Particularly popular an easy riverside walk leads along the beautiful River Tweed from the centre of this attractive town.
This enchanting walk heads upstream along the beautiful banks of the River Tweed from the town of Peebles. It passes the dramatic Neidpath Castle before crossing a minor road. We'll walk along stoned paths, past fields & cattle and along country roads. We'll then walk back along the river to climb to a viewpoint; before descending along country roads, past the Ambulance Depot and back to the car park.

TERRAIN = Riverside and woodland paths with a short section of minor road.
DISTANCE = approx 7.7 miles.
Bring along a packed lunch, as we’ll stop for a picnic on a grassy footbridge (with stunning views). Wear sturdy shoes, as the paths are rough in places.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT = First Bus: X70, 62, 62A.

Toby & I will meet you in Kingsmeadows Car Park, beside my car: A silver Peugeot 308. My car reg is: WIL 6076.

If you need to contact me on the day, my mobile number is:[masked] 7141.

DOGGIE RULES
Seen as there are more four-legged friends joining my walks, I thought it best to establish a few "dog rules". We need to be considerate of attending walkers, who are not dog owners / dog lovers. This will ensure we all enjoy the walks together...............
1) Please ensure that we pick up our dog's mess, whilst walking. (There seems to be an increased presence of dog wardens these days).
2) Dogs are not to be playing with balls while we're walking. (We don't want anyone or any dogs to get hurt).
3) Dogs are to remain beside their owners / be on lead, when we sit down for a picnic. (Not everyone likes a strange dog staring at them - and their cheese sandwiches!).
4) My walks are off-lead. However, owners are to ensure that dogs are put back on lead, if causing disruption to other dogs or humans. (We all want to enjoy the walk).
5) Flexi leads are not permitted on the walks. (We don't want humans & dogs getting tangled up).

      Hi Debs, I am so so sorry :( I left my apartment at 10am this morning thinking that would leave plenty time to get there (the last time I took the bus to the clock I was 30 minutes door to door). I didn't arrive at the clock until 10 past 11!! The traffic has been terrible today - the bus which I took straight back was also stuck in very heavy traffic :( I hope you didn't wait at all and I really hope you all have a lovely day today. I'm so disappointed I'm not with you.

    Unfortunately the earliest bus to Peebles on a Sunday doesn't arrive until 11.35am so looks like I'll be taking the car. I can offer lifts from Annandale Street, just off Leith Walk. If you'd like a lift, either leave your mobile number on here or text me on[masked] 917. Mike

    Hi Willie, can I get a lift with you? I am in Tollcross so can get most anywhere in Edinburgh to be picked up thanks Jan

    1 · August 1, 2013

    • willie m.

      Hi Jan- yes, a lift is no problem. I will wait to see if anybody else is needing picked up before arranging a pick up point.

      1 · August 1, 2013

  • Jan

    Hi Debs can you still offer me a lift from the Gyle for this walk? thanks Jan

    1 · August 1, 2013

    • Debs & T.

      Sorry Jan, but my situation has changed. I'm looking after Sammy for 2 week, for my Dad. My current car is a lot smaller than the Nissan Qashqai. Sammy will now be travelling to Peebles on the back seat, as he can't comfortably fit in my boot. Toby will be driving to Peebles on the front passenger seat; as he wont fit on the back seat with Sammy. Unfortunately, I am now unable to offer lifts for this walk.............

      August 1, 2013

    • Jan

      no problem Debs, I'm sure I can get a lift with someone else

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
