Every summer Springwood Park, in Kelso, hosts the Annual Border Union Show. This happens on the last Friday and Saturday of July each year, and this will be Tartan Plus Tweed’s third year attending the show. This show is an incredible place for families and friends to check out, and attracts people from all over the borders, and even into Northumberland.
On the afternoon of Sunday 7th September we took this delightful circular walk from Leaderfoot Bridge to Earlston called the Diamond Jubilee Walk which was opened in 2012.
The round trip was 8.5 miles according to our “iPhone”. The Earlston Paths Group have done an outstanding job creating this interesting walk. As we meandered through the pine forest on the first leg of the walk along side the River Leader, we came upon a seat made from the river stone which was a nice spot for a wee breather.
