About the RegionThe Teviotdale coastal hills provide protection from the cool easterly winds leaving the valley open to the warming north-west winds. The soil types range from gravely deposits on flats and terraces in the central-west of the valley, limestone derived clay on the valley floor and eastern hillsides, and gravely loams over alluvial subsoil in the southern part of the region.
