June 18: Melrose to Cardrona

Staying along the River Tweed the views of the Yarrow Valley are beyond words. Each bend in the road opens another beautiful vista. The region is called the Borders in that England is just south by a few miles. One can see the hilltops in the distance that sit on the border of the two country. Also, situated along this route is Traquir House, the oldest continuously inhabited house in Scotland dating from 1107.

Then on to Cardrona on the banks of the River Tweed. It is here that the tour through The Borders and The Lothians regions of Scotland come to end. A farewell dinner and time to share the joys of the trip close the evening. Tomorrow after breakfast it is back to Edinburgh and flights for some back to the States.
