In the Autumn of 1886 I walked with an
artist friend through some of the most famous of the Border country,
from Moffat eastwards. Upon our return I put together this record of our
ten days wanderings. Since then the separate articles have appeared in
the pages of various magazines and periodicals. They are now printed
under one cover, in the hope that the glimpse which they seek to afford
of that romance-haunted region may not be without some general interest,
and that the information which they contain, got together from many
miscellaneous sources, may prove of use to others who, like the pilgrims
of 1886, go Borderwards upon the tramp.
