Old Yarrow and Ettrick

Old Yarrow and Ettrick Old Yarrow and Ettrick. The Yarrow and Ettrick valleys are almost as remote now as they were in the mid 1800s, although by the end of the nineteenth century telegraph communication had been introduced and road links had improved to exploit the area's agricultural wealth. This history of the various communities scattered throughout the valleys features many images from a time when coach and charabanc tours were the main source of traffic. These include the Duchess Garden at Bowhill, the Old Bridge at Deuchar, Yarrow Hall, Yarrow Feus Post Office, and the still well-patronised Gordon Arms and Tibbie Sheils' Inn.
