The Merse is that part of the Tweed valley north of the river, and south of the Lammermuir Hills. The name may come from the Old English mersc, which means a marsh. Until the 17th century, the Merse was poorly drained, but the introduction of improved drainage led to the area becoming one of the leading agricultural regions of Scotland.
