BESIDE THE WATERS OF TWEED THAT WIND AMONG THE WOODED PEEBLESSHIRE HILLS

BESIDE THE WATERS OF TWEED THAT WIND AMONG THE WOODED PEEBLESSHIRE HILLS

From its source in the uplands of Peeblesshire to its mouth at Berwick the Tweed is ninety-seven miles long, and flows through Selkirkshire and Roxburghshire, and, after passing Kelso, becomes at once the boundary between Berwickshire and Northumberland and the border between Scotland and England. The Ettrick and the Teviot are well-known tributaries. The Tweed is one of the finest salmon rivers in Scotland, and there is good sport to be had with trout, especially in some of the burns which flow into the river in the Peebles district, where quite a lot of water is still unpreserved and accessible. The original towns along the river which made the famous Cheviot wool cloth, called Tweed, were Selkirk, Innerleithen, Galashiels and Hawick.
