Duns Duns is a considerable town and parish in the county of Berwick. The town of Duns is delightfully situated in the centre of the county, encompassed on the W. N. and E. by the Lammermuir hills, a fine plain 25 miles in extent lying towards the S.
The ancient site of Duns was on the top of the beautiful hill called Duns Law, which is elevated from a base of about 2 1/2 miles in circumference to the height of 630 feet above the level of the sea. The new town of Duns was rebuilt at the foot of the hill. The small water of Whittadder passes by it.
