A Mystery Tour of the Scottish Borders officially launched Borders Journeys today. We were joined by Barbara, Michelle and local actor and storyteller, John Nichol. In the morning we travelled down the beautiful Yarrow Valley to St. Mary’s Loch where we had a morning ice cream sitting by Loch of the Lowes. We travelled back to Selkirk via the Ettrick Valley. A lovely lunch was served just outside Selkirk at Waterwheel Restaurant. After a relaxing lunch in the sunshine we had a tour of Sir Walter Scott’s Courtroom and Halliwell’ House Museum & Robson Gallery. John is a volunteer at The Haining in Selkirk and gave us a tour around the outside of the house and grounds. The final stage of our tour took us to Scott’s View and Temple of the Muses at Dryburgh. A delicious afternoon tea was served on the lawn overlooking the River Tweed at Dryburgh Abbey Hotel; it was the perfect ending to a perfect day. It was a pleasure to have Barbara, Michelle and John’s company on our Mystery Tour of the Scottish Borders and hope we to see them on another one of our tours very soon.
