Keith Robeson is a Countryside Ranger with Scottish Borders Council. He said:

"It starts here and runs all the way through the Scotland for about 470 miles, of which we will have about 70 miles in the Scottish Borders, so hopefully that will attract walkers into this area to explore the Borders before heading up north."
