1. Scott's View, Bemersyde There really is no escaping Sir Walter Scott in the Borders – and when you get to this spot you simply won’t want to. You take the B6356 road – signposted Dryburgh Abbey – off the B6404 to get to the viewpoint with a sensational panorama. It’s a lot easier and quicker in a car than it was when the horse pulling Sir Walter’s hearse to the Abbey is said to have paused here, just as it did on their daily outings. If that is indeed what happened, the horse had good taste as the River Tweed below loops round what was once the site of the original Melrose Abbey.
Reekie Linn It’s a whopper of a waterfall – but you don’t know it’s there until you walk a few hundred yards and then you’ll hear the thundering water. There’s also a second “secret” waterfall – go through the bushes at the end of the path and on further for 100 metres or so.
