Duns Well and Truly On The Map...Well Almost

See what a little complaining will do. A few weeks ago I got on my hobby horse and complained about VisitScotland's shameful under-treatment of Duns on their web site. Well lo and behold the Duns entry has been rewritten and is now substantially bigger than most every one of the other Border towns. Sadly they haven't added it to their map on the web site, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time.

Unfortunately they've taken some of the information from I know not where as they claim Duns is near to Greenknowe tower. In actual fact it's 12 miles away and nearer to Melrose than Duns. VisitScotland also claim that the "small kirk at Ellemford" is nearby to Duns. The kirk at Ellemford was destroyed a hundred years ago and now all that remains are a few grave stones. I'm being picky I know but you'd think they could get it right.

They say that there is no such thing as bad publicity-but VisitScotland may be an exception. I'll peruse thre entry and Hutton Think Tank will pontificate idc
