This is an impressive view looking west over the Tweed towards the Eildon Hills. It is reputed to be a favourite view of Sir Walter Scott. According to legend, he stopped at this point so often on the way to his home to Abbotsford, that his horses would halt without command. After his death in 1832, his funeral cortège passed this way en route to his burial at Dryburgh Abbey, and his horses stopped at his favourite view to allow their master a last look at the Borders landscape.
