Seahouses and Back
Visit the seaside from Hawick while passing through the spectacular scenery of the Borders and the Northumberland National Park. Lunch at Seahouses of Fish and Chips makes for a special day out before your return.
This event can count towards the Scottish Borders Randonneurs’s Super Rouleur Series. There is nothing quite like a visit to the Seaside in July and this route takes you through some spectacular scenery to get there. You start with a visit to the first control at Carter Bar. The road from Hawick climbs gradually but once at Carter Bar you are rewarded with wonderful views at this well known Border Crossing. The may be a temporary food stall here but don't rely on that, you will need to be carrying enough food and drink to get you all the way to Wooler. You won't be seeing any shops until then after you have left Hawick. At Carter Bar the route does not cross the border with England just yet but heads back north for a few kilometers down a long descent with switch backs. You will turn right onto a minor road after the descent and travel through very quiet and hilly Border countryside passing through the village of Yetholm on the way to the next control in Wooler. This is a good place to restock your supplies. The next control is at the Northumberland coast in the holiday town of Seahouses. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, a busy harbour and spectacular beaches nearby. This is where to stop for lunch. The return to Hawick heads north to begin with along quiet roads towards Coldstream. From there it follows the River Tweed upstream to Kelso and then the River Teviot valley back to Hawick.
