Scottish Borders

August 1978

A cycling trip made in August 1978 around the Scottish borders with school friend Mark Linklater. We stayed at: Rock Hall hostel, Kirk Yetholm hostel, "The Moon" in the Lammermuir Hills, Melrose hostel, Byrness hostel and Acomb hostel. We rode 300 miles over 6 days.

We didn't have a camera so the photos are from contemporary sources. Most are from Geograph, licenced under the Creative Commons cc-by-sa/2.0 licence.
