Broughton, Glenholm & Kilbucho

Peeblesshire map

The combined parishes of Broughton, Glenhom & Kilbucho are on the western border of Peeblesshire. Glenholm, Kilbucho & Broughton were combined in 1794 and in 1803 a new church was built at Calzeat. They are now one of the linked parishes of Upper Tweeddale. Glenhom and Kilbucho are bounded by Lanarkshire but Skirling is interposed between Broughton and Lanarkshire. Kirkurd is to the north with Stobo and Drumelzier to the east.
John Buchan, the author, had strong family ties with Broughton. The village war memorial is beside the main road.
