Cheviot National Park

South Scotland MSP Claudia Beamish has backed calls to investigate proposals for a Cheviots National Park, potentially linking it with Northumberland National Park.

Ms Beamish said that a national park in the Borders could bring benefits to the region and that the time was right to expand on Scotland’s two existing parks.

Ms Beamish MSP said: “A national park would provide real opportunities to develop sustainable tourism in the region now and in the future.”
