Ancestry Tours of Tweedsmuir Scotland

Ancestry Tours of Tweedsmuir, Scotland. The village of Tweedsmuir is located eight miles from the source of the River Tweed, in The Borders of Scotland. The village is set in the valley with rolling hills and burns on both sides covering some fifty square miles. It incorporates settlements at Hearthstane, Cockiland, Menzion and Oliver. Oliver Castle was one of the strongholds, and later country estates of the Tweedie family, and there are notable gravestones in the parish churchyard. It is home to the Crook Inn on the A701, one of many claimants to be the oldest inn in Scotland, and where Robert Burns wrote Willie Wastle's Wife.
