The River Tweed

The River Tweed is one of the best salmon rivers in Scotland. From the time of Kenneth the Grim (d. 1005) to that of James VI. (1600) the Tweed uplands were the favourite hunting ground of the Scots monarchs, and, at a later date, the Coven.anters found refuge in. the recesses of the hills and on the banks of Talla Water, an early right-hand affluent.

Close to Stobo Castle is Stobo Kirk, the mother-church of the district, founded by St Kentigern and probably the oldest ecclesiastical building in Tweeddale, a mixture of Saxon, Norman and modern Gothic.
