Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of St Boswells
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of St Boswells in the Scottish Borders, Scotland. The village on the south side of the River Tweed. It lies within the boundaries of the historic county of Roxburghshire. The village has an annual gypsy fair, originally a focus for the trade of horses. This fair once attracted Gypsies from most parts of Scotland, northern England and Ireland. The village is mostly known these days for being on the route of St Cuthbert's Way, a long distance footpath linking Melrose Abbey, 5 miles north west, to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne off the Northumberland coast in north east England. The name commemorates Saint Boisil, an Abbot of Melrose. One of the biggest changes in the area was the arrival of the railway in 1849. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
