Written by Alasdair Allan
This book follows an east to west coast walk by Allan and some friends, and gently explores the history, literature and language of what Allan contends is the oldest national border in the world.
It takes its inspiration from the Burns song, Such A Parcel Of Rogues in in a nation. The journay described was the product of a challenge Allan set himself, not just to walk the border, but to read a way along it too.
It will challenge the preconceptions of many about the a region reputed to have the highest per capita number of titled residents in Scotland, and which is home to the Duke of Buccleuch, one of the largest landowners in Europe.
