Cardrona to the Glen
About This Route
From Traquair, head south for a short way up the B709 to Kirkhouse, then turn west on a very quiet lane past Orchard Mains. Just before Glen House follow the fingerpost north-west up a track, through woodland. From the gate which leads onto the hill, take the grassy track straight over the burn in front of you, enjoy a good canter around the east side of Orchard Rig to Beards Hill, from where a variety of forest roads and tracks lead through Cardrona Forest. Link back to Traquair via the Tweed Trails route which leads out of the forest at the quarry west of Howford, back to Traquair on B7062 past Traquair House.
