In the south east of the Scottish Borders between Duns and Berwick-upon-Tweed, Chirnside has an impressive parish church, good local walks and some famous sons.
This village is located upon a ridge between Berwick-upon-Tweed and Duns, overlooks the Tweed valley with the Cheviots in the distance.Over the Whiteadder Water lies Chirnsidebridge, where an old paper mill building hints at the area’s industrious past. It is still used for modern manufacturing.
Chirnside's most notable sons are David Hume, the philosopher, and Jim Clark, the racing driver. From the village you can follow one of the Border Brains Walks to Auchencrow. The walking routes are available from the Scottish Borders council and offer a free guide to the lives and ideas of the Berwickshire geniuses in the beautiful landscape that gave them birth. You can find out more about Jim Clark at the Jim Clark Room at the museum in Duns.
This location is ideal for long and short walks, visiting country houses and exploring the south east coast of Scotland.
