3-4 day ride through stunning Scottish scenery
The Buccleuch Country Ride was one of the first of its kind in Scotland and provides the rider with a 3-4 day ride of nearly 60 miles through the stunning Scottish Borders Scenery on private tracks; bridleways quiet country roads, and the open road. Scottish Natural Heritage and the British Horse Society with the co-operation of Buccleuch Estates, farmers and landowners have developed the route which is proving very popular.
The scenic route has been carefully way marked and is easy to follow by using a specially prepared map and route guide.
Accommodation is available here at New Woll Estate for riders and horses too allowing easy access to enjoy the popular ride. Facilities such as field shelter, grazing, horse feed, secure tack storage, and parking all make life a lot easier!
