We walked down to the village to have look around shops in Melrose, looking once again for Christmas gifts. There were even fewer shops in Melrose and what there were seemed to focus their business on the rich English expats who now live in the area. Prices seemed to be ridiculously expensive for what they were selling.

Our next port of call was the post office to enquire about ...

... Some however stayed up in the top of the hill and got some great photos. Our hotel was in a town called Gretna Green and we stayed at Gretna Hall. The place was quite large and it was a bit of a maze finding all the rooms for checks at bed time. The lobby was pretty much a pub with all kinds of people having beers and eating at the tables.
