Assault on Lee Pen

  • A gentle initial approach through colourful St Ronan's Wood
  • Now it gets a little tougher (he won't be smiling soon ...)
  • Onwards and upwards ...
  • Final push ...
  • Wonderful views from the summit
  • Lovely fine detail in the rocks too

 

Looking for incredible views up and down the Tweed Valley when next in the area? Then let us recommend a jaunt up Lee Pen – the pointy summit that looms high above the lovely town of Innerleithen. At 502m, it’s no giant, but Lee Pen is still one of the highest hills in the area. And it’s no walk in the park either, with the final push to the summit one to really get the blood pumping. Most walkers opt for a short, sharp out and back route through St Ronan’s Wood behind Innerleithen (see route description here), although it’s also possible to create a circular route, returning via the fish ladder on Leithen Road (near the golf course). Just don't forget your camera!
