The Borders is rich in history – it has been the most fought over region in the UK; a land that has witnessed armies marching north and marching south over nearly 2,000 years.
It has seen the legions of Rome, been part of a powerful Kingdom of Northumbria, born the brunt of English attacks from Edward 1, the Hammer of the Scots, through the Wars of Independence and provided a backdrop for Bonnie Prince Charlie’s ill-fated 1745 rebellion.
