Description:-
This was the route of the 2013 50km event at Selkirk Durty Events. The route was absolutely brilliant with a real mix of good hard climbs, long fast descents on wide open hill sides, stunning views of the Scottish Borders, some good fast single track in the woods and some good technical single track as well.

Note had to guess at a couple of points in the woods at Bowhill and Yair forest for some of the single track sections but most of the route is accurate.

Description:-
this is linking some good xc from Selkirk and the trail centre route at innerliethen.

This is a stunning route on a good day, brutal if the weather is poor. Taking in the Three Brethren and Minch Moor before having some fun on the red route at Innerleithen.

The view from both Minch Moor & the Three brethren is stunning and worth the trip alone.
