Ford and Etal

The Ford and Etal villages lie on the River Till, and is a beautiful setting to spend the day with friends or family. The extensive estates offer a wide variety of activities to please everyone, including rock climbing, the Heatherslaw Railway, visiting the Lady Waterford Hall, renting a bike, etc. The history of the estates dates back to the 11th century, and while these villages now make only one community, in the 14th century the lords of Ford and Etal were bitter rivals, and the estates include the site of the historic Battle of Flodden, the last battle between the English and Scots in which James IV of Scotland was slain, together with about 9000 of his men. King James also stayed at Ford Castle before the battle.
