Looking The Other Way

"Heatherhope" once again, this time facing the other way. You may be able to make out the route the track takes winding up and over the hills in the distance. This is a public right of way which eventually takes you into England and is doubtless a route taken by many a Reiver, Mosstrooper or invading army in the past, before England and Scotland were united. Between the 13th century and the early 17th century The Scottish Borders were anything but the pleasant, tranquil place they are now and were in constant turmoil as groups of rough men, often including the nobility, raided one another's properties, leaving devastation in their wake.

All quiet and peaceful now and a great place for a long distance ramble: the path does carry the eye way off into the far distance.

'Heatherhope'. Such a lovely name Smile And such a beautiful and peaceful landscape with no bearing as to what went on! So glad times have changed. Well...not all over the world, unfortunately.

This is a wonderful shot you've taken of this place, Ann Smile
