Trip Review: Scottish Borders (April 2012)

The United Kingdom

No where in Scotland does it feel more like England than in the Scottish Borders. Thankfully this is not a bad thing here as it gives the area a unique charm. Today's tour consisted of ruined abbeys and pretty little towns. We only managed to squeeze in Melrose Abbey and the town of Peebles but I did manage to get everybody on a long walk from the centre of Peebles to the ruins of Neidpath Castle - which they say is haunted.

It's always nice to feel appreciated and so it was nice to have Berengere and Ellen back - two regulars who left Scotland some time back. It was nice having you on the tour guys! The abbey in Melrose is haunting but beautiful. I wish I could have seen it complete!
