We are now into our 3rd  year  since I took the leap and promoted my videos to a greater audience through my YouTube, Facebook, twitter and website.

During this time it has been great to hear everybody’s views and extra input on some of the places I have visited.
It has become clear tho that a vast majority of information about historic and cultural areas within the Borders region is kept in peoples memories and is less documented throughout the internet and kept in hard-to-access storage.

I have decided  to develop this open map of “Areas  of interest” within the Borders region in the hope that our users and followers can add their own part to documenting and promoting the vast amount of historical information and location of sites so it keeps the archive alive and aid it promoting the Borders as a great historical area of interest in the UK and the world!

To add your own “Area of Interest” first you need to register with our site to be able to login and submit your place.
Below are some easy buttons that will take you to the relevant pages.

I thank you so much if you would like to participate in this new feature (and so will our readers!)

About the Scottish Borders

Technically, as it stands today the Scottish Borders is a council areal formed in 1975 – Although our website is not to be confused as solely concentrating on the council area but rather the whole of the Anglo-Scottish border area that has seen some of the most extravagant moments in history of the British Isles

Historically, the term Borders has a wider meaning, referring to all of the burghs adjoining the English border, also including Dumfriesshire and Kirkcudbrightshire — as well as Northumberland, Cumberland and Westmorland in England.

Roxburghshire and Berwickshire historically bore the brunt of the conflicts with England, both during declared wars such as the Wars of Scottish Independence, and armed raids which took place in the times of the Border Reivers. Thus, across the region are to be seen the ruins of many castles, abbeys and even towns.

The Scottish Borders has seen evidence from Pictish tribes, Roman Strongholds right through to important battles and documented papers that played a vital part of the several Wars of Independence.
