Tweed Valley & Traquair House Tour – 6th June 2012

Mr & Mrs Fry and their son Peter were spending a week’s holiday in Melrose and decided to join us on our Tweed Valley and Traquair House Tour. We started off our tour at Carelee Mills where Janet gave us a very interesting tour of the mill and described the process of making cashmere products. Morning coffee was at Cocoa Black in Peebles where it is a huge choice of chocolate cakes and pastries. It wasn’t the best day to visit Dawyck Botanic Garden, however the rain didn’t prevent the Fry family from enjoying the beauty of the garden. Homemade soup in the restaurant warmed everyone up. It eventually dried up for our visit to Stobo Kirk and Traquair House. No visit to Innerleithen is complete without a visit to Caldwell’s for an ice cream; everyone agreed that it was excellent ice cream especially Peter who loved his chocolate one. We returned to Melrose via the Yarrow Valley. It was a shame that the weather wasn’t kinder to the Fry family, however it didn’t prevent them from enjoying their day. Mr & Mrs Fry commented on how welcoming and friendly they had found the people in the Scottish Borders. We were happy that Mr & Mrs Fry and Peter enjoyed their day with us and we enjoyed sharing history & beauty of Tweed Valley area of the Scottish Borders with them and look forward to welcoming them on another tour again.
