The routes take in both open hill country and wooded river valleys and vary in length between 37 and 53 miles. All routes use quiet unclassified or B class roads where possible but the use of some A class roads is unavoidable. The road network around the town is suitable for family groups looking for shorter routes and an out-and-back trip east along the minor road on the South side of the River Tweed towards Peel is scenically very attractive. Alternatively, head west along the B7062 towards Peebles and visit Traquair House or Kailzie Gardens.
Situated in the Tweed Valley at the junction of a number of roads, Innerleithen makes an ideal starting point for some of the best circular tours in the Borders.
