003.12 ; 004.13 A broad range of Moorish height Stretching Eastward from the Gala Water, in the South Eastern extremity of Mid-Lothian, to the German ocean, at the promontories of Fast Castle, Earncleugh, & St. Abbs Head in the parish of Coldingham, Berwickshire. The Lammermoors all lie, within East Lothian & Berwickshire; commencing at their extreme western limit, forming for two-thirds of their extent a Southern Screen or belt, of uplands to Mid-Lothian & Constituting, if the Lammermoor portion of Lauderdale be included, nearly half of Berwickshire.
The Lammermoors, are, in themselves, an extensive range of, for the most part, wild, cheerless, unsightly heights, nowhere bold & imposing in aspect, and after Subsiding into low rolling Table-lands, of bleak Moor. They were at one time clothed with Forest, & must have been as bewildering to the Traveller, as grandly Sylvan in their vast contribution to the landscape.
