Duns Town Trail

About This Route

The name Duns may derive from the Gaelic Dun, meaning hill or fort. Alternatively it may be derived from the Anglo-Saxon word for a low hill with a flat summit. The town of Duns lies within Berwickshire only 10 miles from the Anglo-Scots border. There are plaques on the buildings that are highlighted in the trail. This will give you an opportunity to explore streets that you might not have thought to visit.
