Kirk Yetholm is situated 8 miles south east of Kelso and less than one mile from the English Border. Nestled in the foothills of the Cheviots, and straddling the River Bowmont, both Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm are thriving rural communities.

Walkers and cyclists find Yetholm an excellent base for a holiday. The surrounding hills are etched with traces of countless earlier generations – hillforts, field systems, abandoned farmsteads and standing stones. The treeless hilltops themselves are also the product of human activity, beginning in the Neolithic period, though the result of this ancient deforestation is a stark and dramatic landscape that is not easily forgotten.

Walkerburn (7)

Walkerburn is named after the burn that flows south from the eastern flanks of Priesthope Burn. It is possible that the ‘whaulker’ burn actually refers to a whaulker. A whaulker was the person who dressed cloth in the mill. Until the 1850’s the only settlement here was Old Caberston Farm and before that some signs of earlier setllers like cultivation terraces. Walkerburn was the last industrial settlement of its kind built in Scotland.
