Yetholm date 
for Cameron

VILLAGERS in Yetholm will watch wilderness hiker, broadcaster and author Cameron McNeish unveil a special plaque marking Kirk Yetholm as the start of the new national trail of Scotland next weekend.

The 470-mile hike, which ends at Cape Wrath, was launched by Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond in Edinburgh in October, when Yetholm Community Council chairman David Hutchinson was presented with the plaque.

The unveiling will take place at the Border Hotel next Saturday (February 9) at 11.30am.
