The Scottish Borders [1] are the region of southern Scotland adjoining the border with England, a fact which has heavily influenced the history of this region. In the days before the union, this area was frequently fought over, and had a reputation for banditry and lawlessness. At the same time, the Scottish kings were keen to develop and embellish the region - their efforts are proably best seen in the four "Border Abbeys" to be found within the region.
