Ladhope Recreation Ground Walk

  1. Leave the car park and go uphill. Where the road swings right take a path on the left cutting across the grass to reach the woodland path.
  2. Head up the woodland path with the Ladhope Burn on your right to reach the track below Heatheryett car park, turn right onto this track and keep right after crossing the bridge. Stay on the track until it reaches the road then turn left and follow the road to the golf course clubhouse. Ladhope Golf Course was also part of the former Ladhope Estate bequeathed to the Burgh of Galashiels.
  3. Continue straight on past the entrance to the golf course car park and then immediately right across the fairway to reach a path climbing uphill. At an old stone wall continue uphill but bearing left to reach a grassy track which goes through a large area of gorse.
  4. After the gorse, continue through the rough grass area. Before joining the Forest at Ladhope Moor, turn left to descend on a grassy track through the gorse. At the bottom of the slope turn left following a grassy path.
  5. At the well turn right and cross the golf course with care to reach the far side, turn left between the course and the woodland until a set of steps are reached.
  6. Go down the steps and alongside the burn until you meet a track, turn right over the bridge and retrace your steps back down
    through the wood to the car park.
