June Trip 2018, Update

June Trip

All members should by now have received your letter containing details of this trip. Would all those wishing to join please return your forms and deposit to Elaine by Friday 27th October, as we have to pay the hotel deposit  by the end of the month.

This will be a one night trip, from Sunday 3rd to Monday 4th June, to visit the Eastern Borders, based at the Ednam House Hotel, Kelso.

On the Sunday we will arrive at Floors Castle in time for morning coffee. We will spend the rest of the morning and early afternoon there, visiting the house and gardens. Light lunches and snacks are available. In the afternoon we will go into Kelso, check into our hotel and have some time to explore the town and the Abbey.

On Monday, we visit Dryburgh Abbey (HES) and then move on to Mellerstain House and Gardens. Again light lunches or snacks are available. We then head back north for a High Tea at one of our favourite venues, Carfraemill Hotel, and then back to Dunfermline. The cost will be around £135 per person.


April Trip

We are also planning a day trip for late April. Details will be available later in the season.
