Friday 06 Jun 2014: Twinned towns of Dull and Boring
There is a village called Dull in Perthshire, Scotland, which is twinned with Boring, Oregon in the USA. Neither place name was conceived because the places were found to be uninteresting: Dull is thought to be derived from the Gaelic words for meadow or snare. Boring was named after William H. Boring, an early resident of the area.
