Extra info
The Lammermuir Hills can be ...

The Lammermuir Hills can be found south-east of Edinburgh, where they form the boundary between East Lothian and the Borders. They are not particularly high (up to 535 m or so) but steep and impassable in many places. The main road from Edinburgh to England takes a detour around them rather than going across.

The hills provide the setting for Sir Walter Scott's novel The Bride of Lammermoor as well as Gaetano Donizetti's opera Lucia di Lammermoor (which is based on the novel).
