Trimontium Walks

We run a series of walks from April to October from our Museum in Melrose to the fort site of Trimontium, near Newstead. We also run a guided Melrose town walk that explores this fascinating historic town nestling in the Borders landscape.

The Trimontium fort site walks are guided by our experienced volunteers who will relate the history of Trimontium as well as other points of interest along the route. The walk covers five miles of moderate terrain (paths and fields), suitable footwear and a snack/drink is recommended.

The Melrose town guided walk is shorter and explores the local town via a series of waymarked points of interest. This walk takes approximately 2 hours and is via paths around the town.

We also suport a series of guided walks to Old Melrose, which was a special place for the indigenous population, was known to the Romans and was also the site of a Celtic Abbey (a Monk’s cell).

All future available walks (& other events) are advertised on our events page and the upcoming walks (& other events) are also detailed below.

Our 2022 Walks Programme runs from April to October.
