The mapped out Jedburgh field.

It is the brainchild of John Henderson, founder of the Born in Scotland retail chain, and it is located close to the company’s headquarters at the town’s Lanton Mill.

Mr Henderson said he wanted to “create something fun” to celebrate Scotland’s participation in a major football tournament for the first time in 23 years.

The outline - which took two months to sketch out - covers about 1.5km (one mile) of the field.

The map was designed by Kelso company Landmaps and needs several hours of mowing a week.

Born in Scotland - which has six retail sites across the country - specialises in selling "retro" Scottish brands.

Visitors to its headquarters will be able to walk the Scotland outline and entry is free.
