Kirk Yetholm is a small village near the Scottish borders. Its sister town is Town Yetholm which lies half a mile across the Bowmont Water.
The history of Kirk Yetholm is closely associated with that of the Scottish Gypsies who had settled here by the end of the 17th century. A law of 1609 made it legal in Scotland to kill Gypsies so many retreated to the edge of the hills to find refuge. The village pays homage to the Yetholm Gypsies who sought refuge by a monument next to the village green. You will also pass the Gypsie Palace, now a small holiday cottage on the way out of Kirk Yetholm.
