Old Melrose, St Boswells and Bowden Old Melrose. Also featuring Dryburgh, Gattonside, Maxton, Mertoun and Newtown St Boswells, this book covers the history of the villages surrounding the Eildon Hills, an area notable for its connections with Sir Walter Scott. The book features over fifty period photographs dating from a century after Scott, when there was a railway, grand country houses such as Ravenswood were still occupied by the local gentry, and when military adventures (in this case the surrender of Pretoria during the Boer War) could still excite popular celebration.
