... he thought as we headed straight out of Innerleithen to Traquair to then climb 450m straight up to Minch Moor. A bit more than a gentle pipe opener! When we got to the top though, the views were majestic with the highlight the Eildons (our destination) in the distance. As on previous days, much of the route followed an old drovers road, so once up the top the going was reasonably easy. Rain showers came and went. In truth they came when we had no ...

In my original construction plan I had banked on all my mortise & tenons and dovetails taking me at least a week to cut by hand. Thanks to a bit of Vorsprung Durch Technik, not only had I completed the job in a couple of hours, but the resulting joints were much better fitting and cleaner than anything I could have cut by hand.

It also has the old continuously inhabited house in Scotland and parts of the house date back 1000 years, with 27 Kings/Queens having visited it. Clearly out of fashion now though, as it's been a while since the last regal visit, from one Mary Queen of Scots.
