Canonbie

Canonbie Accommodation inc hotels, self catering holiday cottages and bed and breakfastsCanonbie is situated in the area originally known as the “Debateable Lands”; a considerable expanse of land neither under the jurisdiction of the Scots nor the English, thus becoming a refuge for all the outlaws and undesirables in the region.

Liddesdale and the land around Canonbie was the territory of the infamous Armstrong Clan, which had the reputation of being the wildest of all the riding families on both sides of the Border.

While the Border was dominated by the Armstrongs on the Scottish side, the Forsters and the Grahams held sway on the English side.

There was a priory once at Canonbie, yet it was destroyed by the English in 1542. The stones were used in the building of Canonbie Bridge.
