Duns Law

Looking over the present town of Duns, a path leads from Castle Street to the top of this hill, site of the first town. The hill is crowned by the defensive banks of an Iron Age settlement, inside which is a military fieldwork which was constructed in 1638, during the first Bishop's War.
A Scottish army under General Leslie occupied the hill, fortified it and reputedly raised the standard of the National Covenant on the Covenanters' Stone which can still be seen.
