Event Description

PG bus trip to The Borders

PG bus trip to The Borders
We take you in the Southern part of Scotland, to the Borders! This region is famous for its abbeys and we will have the chance to see a couple of them among other interesting sightseeing.

First we will stop in Kelso where we can visit the Abbey built in 1128 and the bridge from where we can see the Floor castle. Then we head up to Jedburgh, a former royal burgh. There we can walk in the ruins of another abbey, as well as have a look at the Jedburgh castle jail and Mary Queen of Scots’ House. A visitor centre portrays the poignant story of the Queen's tragic life with thought provoking interpretation and includes her death mask, said to have been taken from her decapitated body at Fotheringay Castle.

Departure at 8:30 from the Gateway, North Haugh and return planned for 7/7:30pm
