Abstract


Scattered throughout the Lowlands of Scotland are several groups of ancient terraces, which make prominent features of the landscapes in which they are found. Even the most casual observer cannot fail to be impressed by them; and the purpose that they served has from early times called forth discussion. There are some who, judging from the clear-cut appearance of the terraced groups, consider them but a few centuries old, and there are others who think that they date from the first centuries of our era, or even earlier. Peeblesshire is particularly rich in these formations, and the terraces at Romanno are one of the best examples in the county.
