Tour of Scottish Borders Country.

Thursday, September 17, 2009

This morning I dropped my guests off at Newcastle Airport following a successful Clan Armstrong tour.

I then drove up Edinburgh taking in:

Jedburgh with its famous (and photgenic) Abbey, Castle and Mary, Queen of Scots House. Weather was perfect for photos and consequently I have enlarged my portfolio of both videos and stills for web purposes. A pic of Jedburgh Abbey is provided below.

Kelso, which I had never before visited and lies about 20 mins from Jedburgh. This is a fantastic little town on the banks of the River Tweed with a huge, cobbled central square, lots of shops (all types and sizes, hotels and a derelict Abbey. Have to say, I was very impressed and would certainly take tour groups there in the future.

Floors Castle, a huge 18th century mansion with gardens and walks which is located close to Kelso. I did not bother with the inside of the Castle but spent time exploring the gardens and grounds. Entrance is quite cheap. This is a good visitor attraction and would be of interest to visitors interested in the architecture of Adam and Playfair. Of course, it helps when the sun shines!

I finally arrived Edinburgh about 5.00pm from where I am writing this.

Tomorrow, I am providing a walking tour of Edinburgh then up to Speyside for a whisky tour. Should be good!
