About the Borders

The Scottish Borders, like many boundary zones, has a history of conflict and battles through the ages. The traces of prehistoric and Roman life and the remains of many fine abbeys, castles and Peel Towers stand as testimony to this passionate and violent past. This has helped forge a strong sense of identity and common culture in the Border Communities.

The turbulent history as well as the natural beauty of the area has also helped to inspire creative talents and imaginations for many years. The romantic novels of Sir Walter Scott and the ballads of James Hogg, the 'Ettrick Shepherd', capture the intrinsic qualities of the Scottish Borders
