The John Buchan Way Walk

  • Mar 22, 2014 · 12:30 PM
  • Broughton Village Store

13 miles of walking away from the hustle & bustle of the city starting from Broughton walking  over the hills to Peebles with an ascent of around 800 metres.  A good level of fitness is required and you should be capable of walking at least 3 miles per hour

I'll be getting the 1030 First Bus 62 to Peebles (arriving 1137) and then the 1200 Barc Coach 91 to Broughton

We'll take in a well deserved drink at a pub in Peebles with buses back to Edinburgh at 1713, 1743, 1813 & 1906

Please ensure you have suitable walking shoes/boots, warm & waterproof clothing plus a torch in case we lose the light at the end of the walk.  Our trip time will be around 4 1/2 - 5 hours and please be considerate of your fellow walkers by arriving on time

My contact number on the day is[masked]

Dogs are welcome but must be under control at all times & on a lead at the request of the organiser

Walkers are responsible for their own safety, and no member or organiser from the group can be held responsible in case of any mishap.  Anyone attending without suitable outdoor attire will not be permitted to join the walk.  By signing up for this walk you are understood to have agreed to these terms

    An exhilarating and at times exhausting walk in ideal conditions in great company and under superb leadership by Gary . Will long remain in the memory in the foot muscles !

    A destination, requiring two buses to get to, but which was worth the time and the extra transport in providing excellent colours and pictures of the snow crowned hills, green fields and barren or forested hill slopes to the 16 walkers, who were fortunate to be part of this walk,.
    A great day out in cold fresh air and plenty of sunshine.
    Thanks Gary for leading this walk into new... territories.

    Big thanks to Gary for putting on this unusual and lovely walk, even if my right knee is aching after 23 km of hillwalking. The speed seemed higher than I would like, but turned out to be perfect to get us back to Peebles just before nightfall. (Sorry I don’t do the ‘good to see you’ thing, as I personally find it rather childish – another unwanted feature which the Meetup elves introduced without anyone requesting it – but it definitely was good to see you all!)

    Hi all, I'm going to be driving from Stirling to Peebles then getting the bus to Broughton. Don't know if anyone needs a lift from Hermiston gait side of Ed as I'll go past there. Let me know if any use for anyone. Also, does anyone know best place to park in Peebles near to where bus goes from. Having never been there am a bit in the dark :-)
    Cheers-see you all Sat x

    I have found out the current bus fares from Edinburgh to Peebles. They are £4.80 single and £8.70 return. I’m afraid I don’t know what the fare is from Peebles to Broughton.
