Dull and Boring

By June 11, 2012 No Comments

The Scottish village of Dull is to join up with the town of Boring in the US.

Elizabeth Leighton, a Dull resident, was on a cycling holiday in the US and passed through Boring when the idea for the twinning came. Unfortunately differences in size (Boring has a population of more than 10,000 compared with Dull’s 84 residents) means they cannot formally twin but they now hope to become sister communities.

Boring town is in Oregon USA whilst Dull village is in Perth and Kinross, Scotland.   Boring was named after William H Boring, an early resident of the area and Dull is believed to come from the old Gaelic word for field or meadow.
