Holiday Day 7 / Edinburgh Day 3 (Day Out To Scottish Borders)


It rained overnight but it was clear this morning and has been a lovely sunny day again although it is rather breezy. We hear that in the south, where we live, a storm is expected tonight, but the weather here seems OK tomorrow.


We had a day trip to Scottish Borders today. It’s a beautiful area so we’ve been there a few times including the time when we were there with my husband’s younger brother and his wife. We did drove there when we moved from Windermere to Edinburgh but it was raining so we couldn’t enjoy the scenery much. It’s about an hour and a half to where we had lunch.



We had lunch at “Coltmans”, where we had lunch with my brother-in-law and his wife 5 years ago. We thought we’d have something light and ordered sandwiches – I had Club Sandwich and my husband had Pulled Pork Sandwich – but both were very large portions. We exchanged in the middle because there was so much of each. We did enjoy it, though.
