I love to see the purple bloom across the moorland spreadThe
purple bloom o' Lammermuir, I love, I love to treadI love to wander
by the marsh that plough has never tornI love to see the reed tufts
wave where ne'er has waved the corn.
The wildlife of the borders is rich in variety and diversity. From the chatter of the grouse in the heather to the snowy hare hiding amongst the grasses, the Lammermuirs are a constant delight and inspiration to the budding enthusiast and the professional wildlife expert alike. Please see our other pages for more details on the beautiful wildlife on our doorstep, which must be protected for both our enjoyment and for future generations to come.
