Back cover text:

The distinctive blend of emotions and responses each landscape stirs up are echoed in stories filtered through the voices of storytellers, the pens of poets and historians, and the tools of artists and crafters. We hope you will experience these too, as you journey with us through the landscape.

The popular Journeys and Evocations series continues with the fourth instalment Travelling the Tweed Dales, an exploration of the Scottish Borders. Six journeys take the reader from Eildon Hills to Tweeddale, from Kelso to Gala Water, Ettrick and Teviotdale. The long history of the Borders and their unique culture is evoked through key personalities, events, stories and folklore.

Complete with driving instructions and directions, the book is a travelogue, expressed through story, poetry and song, set against the landscape, in a previously unexplored way. Whether by foot, bike, bus, armchair or car, this book is your perfect travelling companion.

Previous Journeys and Evocations books focused on Scotland’s capital city, exploring Arthur’s Seat, Calton Hill and Edinburgh Old Town.
