Scott's View

Scottish Borders | Bemersyde | Viewpoint | ★★

[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 also 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. For photographers, the "true" view includes the whole of a large meander in the River Tweed, complementing the striking profile of the Eildon Hills in the background; a wide angle lens is probably needed to fit it in a single shot.
