Visit Chirnside and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Chirnside, Scottish Borders. A village of two streets in a T-shape lying between Ayton and Duns, Chirnside is situated on the brow of Chirnside hill looking South over the streams of Blackadder and of Whiteadder, and also over the River Tweed; it has a fine position and view. Crosshill at the junction of the T in the village was the scene of the sackcloth sale every year in November. The church was originally Norman in type dating from the 13th century, but has been much altered.
Ninewells, South West of Chirnside, was the birthplace of David Hume. His elder brother was the laird there. The philosopher never obtruded the fact, but also (and rightly) he never forgot that he came from the landed gentry of Scotland.
An oddity lies near Ninewells on the DunsóBerwick road. It is “Rock House”, so called because the back of the house is hewn from solid rock in the hill.
