March 19th Floors Castle, Kelso.
This will be a very scenic drive out, we will meet at Highley Gate Garden Centre NE61 3DA at 10.00am and depart 10.30am, we will make our way North passing the Cheviot Hills and cross the Border into Scotland at Coldstream.

Then turning West and head for Kelso, and Floors Castle, where we will have a spot of lunch (or bring your own ) Floors Castle is set in a very scenic part of the Scottish Borders, and is the place where Prince Charles and the late Lady Diana spent part of there honeymoon.

If the weather is clear we will take a short drive to a very scenic view point at Scotts View, ( you will like this one ) at Bemersyde, .
We will then head for Jedburgh and return south by one of the best roads, the A68.

I'm definitely looking forward, it's a part of the region I don't know well and want to get to know better. Weather forecast looks good, and the A68 is always good.
Just leaves the usual question of which car to bring ? The E46 is freshly cleaned inside and out, the E86 is always ready for some country roads. Or do I tax the E30 early and get the roof down ?

Great run out today. Thanks to Michael and Linda for leading us. And Simon for being tail end charlie. And the Scottish Region for teaching us the value of radios (and not noticing that we maybe stepped over the border today !)

Was a great day, what border !!
Thought the staff at the cafe were good, and the reserved tables was nice touch.
Must do it again I the near future, but will go the other way round.
