River Tweed at the village of Yael near Galashiels,Scottish Borders.
Driving around country roads in this area,looking for a woodland walk,my friend Morelle and I found a ramblers route leading to the hills.The path we took is part of the Southern Upland Way,which traverses southern Scotland. Before the days of railways this was a drove road used by drovers to move cattle to markets across the country.
The Tweed is a well known salmon fishing river.
We walked along a road beside the river before taking the path to the hills.
