Shepherds Cottage - Glengaber - This route follows the red XC trail from Innerleithen but then south of the summit at Minch Moor it climbs to the edge of Traquair and Elibank Forest along a forest road before emerging from the forest onto open moorland and descending down to the remote shepherds cottage at Glengaber. A grassy stretch of singletrack descends along a ridge with stunning views out over Traquair and Innerleithen - the trail meets the road at Traquair village and returns to Innerleithen. A remote route that carries us deep into the Southern Uplands.
