Scottish Borders RoadTrip!

In the next phase of our road trip we went from the Hadrian Walls in direction to the beautiful town of Kelso in the Scottish borders!
Equipped with our loyal Lonely Planet of Great Britain! Which gave us some suggestions of super nice places to sightsee on the way to Kelso.

First stop! The impressive Caerlaverock Castle


some very curios cows looking very suspicious to us :P


we can say the same about this mountain sheep!

Somewhere along the Northumberland National Park on the way to our next stop the Traquair House which is one of Britain's great noble residences that was constructed around 1107!


The Traquair House entrance,


Their amazing Maze!! I had never seem one as big as this!!!


it was a lot of fun to go around it :)


in case you got stuck... there was a special exit :)


The impressive Kelso Abbey,


Our second bed and breakfast! The Old Priory right in the middle of Kelso


It was a city B&B but really nice! I specially enjoyed the bedroom!


how nice is that dressing table!!


They had in the hall my favorite flowers peonies which left a really nice smell all around!


In addition to a nice room they have a pretty amazing garden!!!


The breakfast room was also very cozy!!


again as in the previous B&B they also have an impressive hutch!!


full with super cute milk jug's as this one,


breakfast table with a gorgeous garden view,


and a full English breakfast!!! What else can you ask for :)


Next stop!! in direction to Edinburgh!!!
