... before slowly heading back to the hostel to relax before the ghost tour.

Bogle Burn was not in my 2008 road atlas but I eventually found it in a 1927 edition of Muirhead's Blue Guide to Scotland on a map between pages 90 and 91. On this old map it looks like quite a substantial thing crossing the road between Melrose and Newtown St Boswells just ...
