The route was developed and completed in 2005 by Scottish Borders Council (SBC) and continues to be
maintained by their Countryside Ranger Service. SBC have on the council website a dedicated page relating to the Way with downloadable
brochures that deal with each of the five sections, a Borders Abbeys Way (BAW) introduction and full route map with
areas of interest. The BAW single web page can be accessed by
Apart from being a Way full of beauty, variety and interest it is also being walked by many as a pilgrimage walk. For more
understanding of this routes Christian heritage an additional section has been added to this website which can be seen by

On this website all the information runs as if the walk was started at Kelso and undertaken in a clockwise direction.
This is not in any sense a preferred sequence, walkers should select a start point that best suits their travelling
needs and their preferences in terms of starting and end day distances.
Since the opening of the Borders Railway in 2015 there is an additional option of starting and ending the Way at the
Tweedbank railway station. For information on this click on this link.
