A TOP TV presenter paid a visit to the Borders recently to feature some of the great walks the region has to offer.

As part of This Morning's Get Britain Walking segment on ITV - which aired today (Friday, March 29) - presenter Jeff Brazier joined members of the Peebles branch of the Paths For All Walk It group on the Three Bridges Walk along the Tweed.

Brazier was invited to join the group by walk leader Charlie Sim.

Mr Sim said: "One of the reasons I got involved in this walk is because my wife was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and got a lot of help and support from the community and the NHS.

"I just thought what can I do to give back?

"When I came along [to the group] everybody here was so supportive."

The presenter also spoke with Denise Carmichael from Walk It Scottish Borders.

When asked what people get from the walks, she said: "I think a huge part of it is the physical activity.

"But we kind of hide it, because people really enjoy coming along. There's social time, there's a cuppa at the end, people make connections.

"So, it's good for physical activity, mental health, and social connectedness."

Ms Carmichael also shared that in the last year around 11,000 people had joined a Walk It group in the Borders.

Brazier and Mr Sim then took a brief walk near Cademuir Hill before making a stop at UK World Chocolate Master Ruth Hinks' shop and café, Cocoa Black, to warm up.
