Duns Town Trail
70 Castle Street

70 Castle Street (15). This house was known as 'The Beggars' Neffie' (fistful) from the fact that a man who once lived there took part in a peculiar form of trade. The local beggars were at one time given a handful of grain from the Town's charities in order for them to survive. With this they would head up Castle Street to number 70 where they subsequently traded the grain for cash from the owner. Who knows what they did with the money but perhaps a few then made their way back downhill towards the Ewe & Lamb! Carry on up towards the lodge house.
