The Cheviot Hills, from which this breed of sheep gets its name, form the border line between England and Scotland. The Cheviot Sheep Society was formed in 1890 and is one of the oldest sheep societies in existence.

The NSA Scot Sheep event 2014 took place on Wednesday 4 June 2014 at Quixwood Farm, Granshouse, Duns.
A good team travelled to Quixwood on the Tuesday where the stand was set up and an excellent selection of sheep and lambs penned for display. Poor weather on the day of the event meant that the stands were very busy - lots of tea, coffee and cakes were administered to appreciative members and other interested parties.
Despite the location of our stand, which was a bit out of the way, a lot of interest was shown in the quality sheep on display. Thanks must go to Lovat Mill for sponsoring the tweed for the display and to members and their families for manning the stand and providing delicious traybakes.
An added bonus on the day was the good price received by Skelfhill and Sundhope for their pairs of ewe hoggs which were auctioned at the end of the afternoon.
