Day 1
After local pickups we make our way north to the Scottish borders and the village of Gretna.

Day 2
Today we visit Drumlanrig Castle situated on the Queensbury Estate and affectionately know as the Pink Palace.  It boasts 120 rooms and 17 turrets, has sumptuous rooms and impressive gardens with breath-taking views across the Nith Valley.   Here we have a guided tour before travelling to Dumfries where we have time at leisure.

Day 3
Today we remain in the Borders; we have a fascinating tour of Lochcarron’s Selkirk Mill to discover how tartan is produced.  We then continue for time at leisure in the lovely genteel Borders town of Peebles before returning to our hotel.

Day 4
We further explore the Borders today with visits to historic Kelso, regarded as one of the region’s most charming towns with its cobbled streets and elegant Georgian Buildings.  Our next visit is to Hawick where we have a visit to Johnstons of Elgin’s Hawick Mill.

Day 5
After breakfast we make our way homewards with a lunch stop in Appleby before we continue homewards.
