Innerleithen & Kelso, Borders

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

The wet weather kept me from the Highlands so it was off to points nearer in the Borders. Set out on Saturday the 18th of August and headed down to Innerleithen. Spent a wet but relaxing time on the single-track road from Innerleithen to Walkerburn. Watched herons by the river Tweed and in bare old pine trees on the riverbank.

Filmed the road later on before heading east towards Kelso. Next day recorded the section of the B699 where it skirts the Marchmont, just outside Kelso. Then it was on to Selkirk up the Yarrow Valley turning off at the junction of the B709 from Mountbenger over the hills to Traquair, turning left onto the B7062 on up to Peebles.
