- Distance: 5km/3miles
- Start/Finish: Demainholm Forest Car park on the west of the road 2km south of Newcastleton.
- Terrain: Generally good paths. Rough and often wet section in the middle. Boots or strong shoes recommended.
- Toilet: None on route, nearest in Demainholm
- Notes: Demainholm is owned by Buccleuch Estates, and was planted in 1995, so the trees are still young. The estate has laid out two walks, one of which is described here. The walk is also still young and at the time of writing the central section was quite rough and undefined. However, it is well waymarked and is not difficult to follow. This section can also be wet underfoot after rain. For this walk, you are following orange markers.
