Following the path downhill you will reach a road. This road continues towards Traquair and Innerleithen. Just before Innerleithen there is a turnoff towards the right. You can find a bothy in which you can stay a bit further. We continued towards Innerleithen itself. After three days of walking we wanted to replenish our supplies and have a good shower. To reach Innerleithen itself you just have to follow the road.
