A GUIDE TO THE SCOTTISH BORDERS -
Four years ago we left Trinidad in the warm Caribbean, and migrated to Scotland to the Border area of Eildon, Walter Scott (of Ivanhoe and Rob Roy fame) lived here. Its a beautiful area, varying from soft rolling hills with hidden valleys, to rough moorland high up and bleak. Its quiet and calm here and we love it.
This blog will be my diary of our adventures and our recommendations of places to visit and eat and explore.

We have had cold wet, snowy and miserable weather since October last year, that is 7 months of the most depressing weather I have ever lived through. At last I realize why depression is the number one disease in Scotland! During the period I longed for my old Caribbean home. 7 months is a long time without a nice week of weather. We did have odd days, like the one we walked the walls at Berwick but they were rare gleans in a uniform grayness We had thick snow and even were snowed in during late March this year the coldest on record (see picture of 4 foot drifts on our drive).
Yesterday was the first day of good weather and I mowed the lawns for the first time, today heavy rain again.
