The valley sides of the Logan Burn, which occupies a short glen on the west side of the River Tweed, offer a landscape palimpsest which include Bronze Age cairns and burnt mounds, an Iron Age fort and a settlement, agricultural field terraces of unknown date, post-medieval settlements and agricultural remains, and features associated with the pipeline that carries water from Talla Reservoir to Edinburgh

All of this is conveniently adjacent the A701 road and a layby for parking. The current excavations and surveys are now revealing more detail of the later periods. It is intended to create a trail through all of the sites and install illustrated interpretation panels as appropriate. The visitor will also be rewarded with spectacular views of the River Tweed valley and surrounding hills.
