Linton Loch
Linton Loch
Another hiding place of the 'Linton Worm'. The loch itself has now all but disappeared as the result of succession and is merely a boggy hollow.
Following The Trail Of The 'Linton Worm'
The 'Linton Worm' is a mythical beast believed to have lived in this corner of Roxburghshire in the Scottish Borders in the 12th century. The word 'worm' derives from 'wyrm' (serpent).

The beast was reported to be longer than three yards, and in girth, larger than a man's leg.
