    We took the advice from our host and altered our morning route to follow a main road into Selkirk and Galashiels that would be quiet.

Of course, talk turned to the referendum but it was good to see there were no hard feelings to us English!

    ... Street Gardens where the Scott Monument is located. We encountered more of the Fringe Festival was going on with street entertainers, more booths, and a concert.

And after a long day of driving, walking (nearly 12 miles), trudging through mud and rain and finally getting to the room, we were glad to be getting some sleep.

    ... houses that are out in the country side are stand alone but no garage. What I do like about the country houses is that almost all of them are painted white, set this against the wonderfully green country side that is scotland and it makes for a very beautiful picture, I was discussing this with another visitor and she commented on what it would look like during winter? white snow, White House!
