For hill walkers, the hills in the Scottish Borders fall within the Southern Uplands. They are most appropriately described as rolling moorland hills. There are a number of quality hill walking days to be experienced in the area. There are six long distance routes that fall wholly or partly within Scottish Borders. Each route has its own unique character - built heritage on the Borders Abbeys Way, pilgrimage to historic sites on St Cuthbert's Way and remote countryside on the Southern Upland Way.
