The Cheviot Hills

In anticipation of the release of Duba & Company’s Cheviot line of lamb on Monday, August 12–a breed dating back to at least the 1300s–last week’s post (“Gateway Lamb”) celebrated the the historical events of that era. This week, I thought it fitting to continue by celebrating the region from which these lamb originate: the Cheviot Hills, which straddle the northern boarder of England and the southern boarder of Scotland. Treat yourself to the stunning beauty of the region with these images (provided by TripAdvisor):

For a further immersion in the Cheviot hill country, listen to “The Ballad of Otterburn”, a folk song which draws its inspiration from the Battle of Otterburn (1388)–taking place in this high country between Scotland and England.
