027.06 This is here a considerable Stream, where it forms the Boundary between the parishes of "Hume" and "Earlston," It has an artificial appearance, it having been both widened and deepened for the purpose of draining the low land which lies on each Side. It forms the Boundary of the above parishes for only about 3/4 of a mile after which it Separates the Phs [Parishes] of Earlston and Nenthorn &c. It rises in the parish of Legerwood, near Boon; and flows first eastwardly and then southward, dividing the parishes of Earlston from the parishes of Hume and Neuthorn. It then debouches to the East, and flows through the parish of Neuthorn, and over a neck of Roxburghshire, intersecting in its Course the parish of Ednam, and falls into the Tweed 3 1/2 miles below Kelso. Its whole course is about 17 or 18 miles. The lower part of its Course is very beautiful, being through rich, & finely wooded pastoral scenery.
