Welcome to the Ettrick Self Drive Audio Trail


First we follow the river Esk up a remote valley filled with extraordinary people and places - one of Britain's best-known engineers, an ancient kings' grave, neolithic stone circles, and a most amazing monastery. We hear of covenanters and pedlars before dropping down to Ettrick to hear about Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd. As we return to Selkirk there are stories of poets, reivers, covenanters, a wizard and two fairy queens.

The trail starts at Langholm's principal car park beside the river.
The trail length is 40 miles, driving time is approximately 1 ¼ hrs and the trail, with recommended stops, will probably take you a full day.

Please explore the trail map and plan your day by taking advantage of your Reivers Pass, free when you buy this trail.
For the best audio experience please download our free App to your Mobile/Tablet device enabling GPS activation and allowing you to relax, and just Drive and Discover.
