Welcome to the website of the Parishes of Upper Tweeddale. The charge is made up of the four linked Parishes of Broughton, Glenholm and Kilbucho; Skirling; Stobo and Drumelzier; and Tweedsmuir. The villages, the churches and their congregations are all quite distinct but despite, or possibly because of this they are in harmony with one another.
