James Hogg the Ettrick Shepherd

James Hogg the Ettrick Shepherd.

On trip to Scottish Borders at the weekend, we visited the memorial to James Hogg, The Ettrick Shepherd. Although not as famous as Robert Burns, he still ranks highly in Scottish literature. A wonderful statue reflecting the esteem in which he is held in Scotland.

A true reminder that you are in the Scottish Borders, the round sheep pens are everywhere and paint the picture of the culture, as well as any artist.

Loch of the Lowes, Scottish Borders.

A lovely Loch, close to the more famous St Mary's Loch, has the statue to James Hogg nearby! A wonderful spot to stop and reflect.
