Scottish Borders and Alnwick

Alex, Hayley, Payton and Shelby from Oklahoma Christian University joined us on a tour of the Scottish Borders and Alnwick. All four were on a Study Abroad programme and had been studying in Vienna and Rome. Before returning home they decided to visit Scotland for the first time. Being Harry Potter fans, Alnwick Castle was high on their list for places to visit. During our tour we visited Scott’s View, William Wallace Monument, Jedburgh, Alnwick Castle and Burnmouth.
