Mrs Bayliss last visited the Scottish Borders thirty nine years ago and decided that she wanted to revisit the area. We organised a tour where Mrs Bayliss could visit places that she’d visited last time plus introduce her to new places of interest.
We collected Mrs Bayliss in Melrose before heading to the beautiful Yarrow Valley. It was lovely travelling up the valley in the brilliant autumn sunshine. Our first stop was St. Mary’s Loch which to Mrs. Bayliss’ delight hadn’t changed since her last visit. We had a lovely lunch in the Glen Café overlooking the Loch of the Lowes while Mrs Bayliss recounted her last visit to the area. After lunch we drove to the Grey Mare’s Tail to admire the magnificent water fall.
We travelled back along the shores of St. Mary’s Loch then over ‘Paddy Slacks’ to Traquair House where Mrs Bayliss admired the house and was intrigued by its history and the legend of the Bear Gates. Travelling via Cardrona we arrived in Peebles. Peebles still maintains its market town feel as there are still many local independent shops on its High Street. We ‘stocked up’ on provisions from Forsyths before leaving the town. The Tweed Valley looked amazing as the glorious autumn colours of the trees looked amazing in the late afternoon sunshine. No visit to Innerleithen is complete without a Caldwell’s award winning ice cream; Mrs Bayliss had one and loved it!
Mrs Bayliss enjoyed her tour today and stated that she intends to revisit the region again soon as there is so much more that she’d like to explore. We hope that Mrs Bayliss enjoys the rest of her stay in the area and wish her a safe journey home.
