Enjoy our selection of folklore from the Borders featuring stunning retellings and tales from original Victorian texts.
History & Future
The legends of the Borders were retold in the 18th Century by Sir Walter Scott in his romanticised Borders Ballads, which captured the hearts and minds of Victorians. This lead to the great revival of Scottish Folklore in the Victorian era. We hope that through Folklore Scotland’s efforts to promote and preserve Scottish legends, the Borders can once again play an important role in helping Scotland retain its storytelling traditions.
