Borders inspiration

Atmosphere galore in the Scottish Borders, with strong tones of Buchan. Melrose, Kelso, Jedburgh, Dryburgh, Selkirk, Hawick and Bedrule. We moved into Lindores, 19 Fenwick Park, last summer. This photojournal records our first year in the Borders. Apparently, quite a few folk are saying: "Right. That's it. I'm moving to Scotland." https://www.facebook.com/HastingsLegal/photos/a.599523210135684.1073741828.578472338907438/1056166137804720/?type=3&theater

Crazy futuristic 'Kelpie'-style sculpture outside a pub in Kelso. Of all places.

Smailholm Tower, a craggy peel tower five miles from Kelso, with commanding views. I can't believe they haven't shot a scene from Game of Thrones at this striking and strategic location.

The Eildons. Epic hills in genteel countryside ... alias Trimontium to the Romans. Stunning in every season.

Lindores, our Borders home, shining in spring sunlight amid the almond blossom. No-one is quite sure when 19 Fenwick Park was was built, but neighbours suggest it was around 1905, so classic Edwardian. Scottish Arts and Crafts for the new age, perhaps. http://pamkelt.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/seasonal-beauty-in-scottish-borders.html

Our lovely dog Chester enjoying the stream in Craik Forest on an unusually benign spring day. This photo breaks my heart, for we knew he was seriously ill, although he did not. He died shortly afterwards, but he loved this place. For all its beauty, I shall never return.
