14 November 2013 - Scotts View, Scottish Borders.

This morning we visited Scotts View in the Scottish Borders a short distance from the caravan site where we were staying for a short break. This was a favourite viewpoint of famous Scottish writer and poet Sir Walter Scott and it's easy to see why, with superb views along the River Tweed to the Eildon Hills and beyond.

The first two photos below are views towards Melrose and the Eildons, followed by views to a nearby home and farm surrounded by trees in full Autumn colours.

The last photo is a roadside view which shows a plate that identifies all the hills that can be seen from this point.

03 November 2013 - Bothal, Northumberland.
