After many delays due to Covid and Lockdowns, Audlem and District Probus Club finally went on holiday to the Scottish Borders ,thanks to the hard work, planning and patience of our Social Secretary Roy Plume.

The group set off from Audlem on Monday morning 6th June and, after a brief stop at the Tbay M6 service station, we continued to Rosslyn Chapel, famous, of course, from Dan Brown's book" The DaVinci code" and the search for the Holy Grail. The Chapel has a fascinating history as explained by our guide and some intricate masonry and gargoyles.

Continuing on our journey we finally arrive at Kelso and our Hotel for the week -The Ednam House Hotel at Kelso – beautifully located overlooking the River Tweed in three acres of gardens.

Our social secretary had planned a varied interesting visits through the week which saw us go to :

  • Floors Castle at Kelso.
  • North Berwick ( where we experienced the only rain of the week).
  • The Museum of Flight and a walk through one of the Early Concorde Mach 2 planes followed by visits to military aircraft in nearby hangars.
  • The Home of Sir Walter Scott, Abbotsford.
  • Lochcarron , the world leading manufacture of Tartans at Selkirk.
  • Alnwick gardens.
  • Holy Island and Lindisfarne

So on Saturday we set out for home, Audlem, stopping at Sedbergh for lunch and setting our excellent Leon driver the challenge to cross the famous narrow Sedbergh bridge which he did with ease!

Many thanks again to Roy Plume our Social Secretary and fellow travellers for a throughly enjoyable holiday.
