From the ruined cottages at Blinkbonny.
Flodden Hill was site of the camp of the Scottish army, under King James IV, on the night before their almost total destruction at the Battle of Flodden on September 9th 1513. Now a sleepy backwater, this was once a site of momentous events in British history.

Also called the Battle of Branxton Moor. It was fought on September 9th 1513 between an invading Scots army under King James IV and an English army commanded by Thomas Howard, Earl of Surrey.
