Scottish poet Rab Wilson is heading out to the remote Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys to become the first ever James Hogg Creative Resident, living and writing like the famous poet himself.
James Hogg was known as the Ettrick Shepherd and lived and worked out in the remote Borders.
The project is not just about poetry though as it is part of a bigger drive to encourage visitors and residents alike to visit the Ettrick and Yarrow valleys - which have less than 1000 people in total living there.
With the population declining, the area is in need of some help - which it hopes can be provided by making people more aware of the natural beauty of the remote countryside in the valleys.
Other schemes that are hoping to help this growth are:
Plans for hydro electric power in the area
Improve road link from Potburn to the A708
Building routes for St Mary's Loch Circular Walk
Cycle routes a Bowhill Off Road and Minchmoor to Yarrowford
The Yarrow and Ettrick show secretary Anne Turnbull is hoping for lots of people and sunshine on show day.
"Yarrow Show tomorrow is the biggest blackfaced sheep show in the South of Scotland and this year we also have excellent entries in the all of the other sheep sections :- Cheviots; Park Sheep; and North Country Cheviots. It is a very pleasant day out for all the family. We will have Pipe Bands & Silver Bands playing; Childen's Races; and the hugely hilarious terrier racing.
I think we are going to be lucky with the weather. So many events have been cancelled this year so hopefully we will have lots of people through the gate."
