I live in the Scottish Borders in the beautiful Tweed Valley which takes its name from the great 'Queen of Rivers' the Tweed, so famed for its salmon and trout fishing and lowland hillwalking.
It is an area that embraces the Southern Upland mountains and contain such gems as St Mary's Loch in the Ettrick Valley, and Megget and Talla reservoirs resting high in the glens of Upper Tweeddale. Further north the Moorfoot Hills also form part of the SU range.
Though not as high as the Scottish Highlands, these Lowland Corbett and Graham hills are more accessible yet still remote enough to find solitude and peace with nature and demand respect.
