Turning right at the junction towards Stow takes you almost immediately between Easter Park on the left and Big Wood on the right. The Big Wood layby and Axehead car parks are a few hundred yardsfurther along on the right.
Exit Galashiels via Langlee. At the East end of Langlee turn left past the new housing estate towards Langshaw and the council landfill site. In just under 5 miles you come to a junction where Stow is sign posted to the left. After crossing a bridge and passing a firing range on the right you will see the Gullet Woods car park on your left. If you turn left for Stow at the junction this will take you along a road that passes between Easter Park on the left and Big Wood on the right.
