Wilde Walks: the Eildon Hills

Suzie Wilde’s Wilde Walks take us to the Eildon Hills near Melrose in the Scottish Borders this week.

Convenient for author Suzie’s latest book launch, this group of three hills looks down over Melrose.

Follow Suzie, Richard and Raine as they spot birds, squirrels and more in this beautiful and sometimes overlooked area of Britain.

Suzie Wilde’s Wilde Walks are enjoyable explorations around Petersfield.

Today, Suzie lets her imagination run as wild as the walk itself.
