The Anglo Scottish Border was at one time one of the wildest, most lawless places in the country. Bands of organised criminal family gangs rode around the barren yet beautiful countryside terrorising... More > farmers and stealing their stock. Murder, blackmail and feuds were commonplace as the clan chiefs and their men on both sides of the line plundered and left smoking wreckage behind them. Nationality didn't matter to these ruthless gangsters - they were happy to raid anywhere and the loyalty was only to the family name. This pocket guide intends to give a brief idea of some of the main places to visit in order to capture a sense of the times and the places inhabited by the infamous Border Reivers. The valleys that once thundered with horses hooves and the clash of steel are now an idylic and tranquil place. But on a dark night, when the wind is howling, maybe you can still just hear the ghosts of those mosstroopers laughing in the air.< Less
