Photographer's Note

Another picture taken during a wonderfully enjoyable meeting of some TE members in the Scottish Borders last month. We actually stayed in hotels very near to the church steeple which you see on the left.

This is the small border town of Peebles taken from exactly the same location below the bridge as this previous picture but looking downstream across the River Tweed toward the main part of the town itself.

Peebles is a small town of about 8,000 population and which developed at the confluence of the River Tweed and Eddleston Water. For centuries it played a large part in the wool trade and had several wollen mills though all but one have now disappeared. Now it caters for tourists enjoying the scenery of the Scottish Borders and also acts a dormitory town for workers in Edinburgh which is only about 25 miles distant by road.
