What's on nearby?
Canonbie – The village of Canonbie is located just over 1 mile north of the Scottish border and has a population of over 400 people. Canonbie sits on the River Esk and many people come to fish for salmon or sea trout.
The history of the locality goes back many years to the time of the Reivers and the river and village were immortalised by Sir Walter Scott in his poem 'The Young Lochinvar'. It was during the reign of David 1st (1124 – 1153) that the priory was founded, and from this Canonbie got its name 'the town of Canons'. Being in the very heart of the debateable lands during turbulent times, it appears that Lord Wharton destroyed the Priory in his notorious raid after the battle of Solway Moss in 1542.
