Lammermoor Hills Lammermoor Hills Map of Berwickshire; Fullerton’s Gazetteer of Scotland; New Statistical Acct. Berwickshire; Chalmers Caledonia On Sheets: 10.3, 10.4, 10.7, 10.8 & 10.11 A broad range of moorish heights stretching eastward from the vale of Gala-water, in the southeast extremity of Mid-Lothian to the German ocean at the promontories of Fast-castle, Barns-cleugh and St. Abb’s-head in the parish of Coldingham, Berwickshire. The Lammermoors all lie within East Lothian and Berwickshire; commencing at their extreme western limit, forming for two thirds of their extent a southern screen or belt of uplands to Mid-Lothian and constituting - if the Lammermoor part of Lauderdale be included - nearly one half of Berwickshire. The Lammermoors are, in themselves, an extensive curvature of, for the most part, wild, cheerless, unsightly heights, nowhere bold and imposing in a?? and often subsiding into low rolling tablelands of bleak moor. They were at one preriod clothed with forest, and must have been as bewildering to the traveller as grandly sylvan in their vast contribution to the landscape. They have still natural woods hanging on some of their slopes, and in such localities are warmed out of their chilliness of aspect; but over their summits, aand down their higher slopes they are almost everywhere nakedly dressed in heath.
