Sir Walter Scott stayed here for a holiday in 1791 and wrote ...

...Behold a letter from the mountains for I am very snugly settled here in a farmer's house ... in the very centre of the Cheviot Hills in one of the wildest and most Romantic sites ... My uncle drinks the goat's whey here, as I do ever since I understood it was brought to his bedside every morning at six by a very pretty dairy-maid.

All day we shoot, fish, walk and ride; dine and sup on fish struggling from the stream ... all in perfection; and so much simplicity resides among these hills that a pen ... was not to be found about the house, though belonging to a considerable farmer, till I shot the crow with whose quill I write this epistle.

The Letters of Sir Walter Scott (1787-1832) ed. Sir Herbert J.C. Grierson.
