Welcome to the Flodden Self Drive Audio Trail

We're quickly at Flodden Battlefield to learn about a devastating day for Scotland. Then, following the foothills of the Cheviots we're on small pretty roads with wide views and reiving stories. There's qypsy music at Kirk and Town Yetholm - the twin towns where the clan chiefs were buried after Flodden. We cross Roman 'Dere Street' before dropping into Jedburgh with its stunning medievil abbey. The way back to Hawick, home of Scottish knitwear, is by Denholm, birthplace of two extraordinary men who made an impact on the world.

Trail length is 40 miles, driving time is approximately 1 ¼ hr and the trail will take you a full day.
