Title

Near Kirk Yetholm, Pennine Way - PEN00175

Description

Yetholm is a village straddling the Bowmont River on the edge of the Cheviot Hills, close to the English Border. It consists of two small villages - Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm. Yetholm is famed for being the home to the kings and queens of the Scottish gypsies from the 16th century. The former ‘Gypsy Palace’ can be seen just off Kirk Yetholm Green. There are signs of ancient human activity in the countryside surrounding the Town Yetholm including numerous hill forts, hut platforms and field boundaries.
