Yetholm can rightly claim to be a jewel of undiscovered Scotland. Known as “The Gate Town”, due to its proximity to the English border, it consists of two villages called Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm. Famous for the “Yetholme Gypsies”, who were nomadic people who eventually settled in Kirk Yetholm in the 16th century to avoid English persecution.
Its other claim to fame is being either the start or end of the Pennine Way, depending on your travel route. There is even a country hotel called the Border Hotel, where you can stay at the end of your long walk and celebrate your success at completing this famous walking route.
Since Wi-Fi is available at the hotel, you can indulge in a spot of live sport on the Unibet site. If you enjoy basketball live stream, then why not have a bet on the outcome of the game? Many other live sports such as horse racing and football are available to watch and bet on.
Another well-known walking route is St Cuthbert’s Way which traces the footsteps of this famous saint from Melrose to Lindisfarne. St Cuthbert was the patron saint of Northumbria, and he settled on Lindisfarne at the age of 30, where he ran the local monastery. He was born in Melrose hence the reason for calling this walk St Cuthbert’s Way. This is a less arduous walk than the Pennine Way and is around 62 miles in total. Again the Border Hotel in Kirk Yetholm is a place of respite and recuperation after the rigours of your long walks.
Yetholm is a quaint Scottish village which is an ideal base if you like walking. Above are two famous walks you can try from Yetholm, but there are many more if you do your research.
