Summary: The John Buchan Way is a walking route from Peebles to Broughton in the Scottish Borders. The route was opened in spring 2003 and it is waymarked in both directions . It is named after the writer and diplomat John Buchan (1875-1940), who has many associations with the area. The route mainly follows long-established hill tracks through the Peeblesshire countryside. It has three main ascents and descents which give a total climb of about 800 metres, but the climbing is never severe. The walk can be completed in one day or can conveniently be split into a two day walk at the halfway point in Stobo. Points of interest along the route include Broughton, Clover Law, Cowiemuir Hass, Hammer Head, Hopehead Rig, Hammer Knowe, Hammer Rig, Stobo, Glack Hope, Cademuir, Morning Hill and Peebles.
