Scott's View

The road around Bemersyde Hill to the east of Melrose leads to what was supposedly Sir Walter Scott's favourite view. It's been referred to as southern Scotland's most inspiring panorama: if you take that as gospel you'll be disappointed, but it's certainly one of the region's better roadside viewpoints - especially in morning sunshine. The "true" view is from further down the hillside, with a large meander in the River Tweed complementing the striking profile of the Eildon Hills in the background, but in late summer gorse bushes barred our progress.
