River Tweed
By Sir Thomas Dick Lauder

This fascinating program takes us on a journey following the course of the River Tweed. Starting at its source from The Tweed's Well and following its progress down towards Peebles and the borders. From there we double back taking in the sights along the Yarrow Water stopping at Selkirk and Kelso, before reaching the mouth of the river at Berwick Upon Tweed. With breathtaking aerial views of the river as it journeys from its spectacular moor land birthplace by the Devil's Beeftub we take in many of Scotland's important landmarks such as Melrose Abbey, Stobo Castle, Newark Castle and the birthplace of writer James Hogg, also known as the Ettrick Shepherd.
