The route took us through some beautiful scenery.
We stopped at The Gordon Arms for coffee as did many others. I think the landlord was a bit surprised by the sudden boost in custom. We spent a while browsing through pictures of the aftermath of a serious fire a couple of years ago. It was hard to believe that where we were sat was a mass of charred rubble such a short time ago.
From there it was an uneventful run to The Dryburgh Abbey Hotel for lunch.
It was an easy afternoon run back to the hotel with a brief stop at Scott's View for a photo.
