Make Tracks to Philiphaugh

Brass Rubbings Trail

Keep the children busy with The Brass Rubbings Trail. Pick up a map, pencil and pad from The Waterwheel and find ten brass rubbings plaques, of wildlife from the area located in a trail.

Starting from the centre, cross over the bridge and head down to the cauld. Continue along the river up to the meetings pool, where the Yarrow meets the Ettrick Water and return through the woods.

Follow the map on the brass rubbings leaflet and keep the leaflet to use at two further brass rubbings trails at Glentress Forest and Kailzie Gardens in Peebles.

Keep a look out for the wildlife as you go along, as the plaques are there to remind you about the amazing wildlife that can be seen at each of these three sites.
