<p>A lovely sunset I waited for after finding this lovely line of trees at Fans in the Scottish Borders. It reminds me of soldiers marching over the hill......just my imagination working overtime.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/lordskully/">Frank Pickavant</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>The old Toll bar at Gretna lies a few meters from the border with England. Built in 1830 as a toll house it was also a marriage room for runaway couples from England who could get married there without their parents consent. <br />
<br />
The marriage act of 1754 meant couples had to marry in a church and be over 21 to marry without their parents consent.<br />
Scotland refused to adopt the act until 1940.<br />
<br />
The marriage room at the Toll Bar is not to be confused with the Famous Old Blacksmiths shop at nearby Gretna Green were couples could marry over the anvil from 1754. <br />

<p>The cloud was too thick for any real colour tonight, but it was a lovely warm peach on an otherwise cold afternoon</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/dontiff2/">Lincspix</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>This was a superb walk along the Borders Abbeys Way by the river Tweed with some stunning autumn colour.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/railcam/">Railcam</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>The following day was much better as The Claymore tour went from Edinburgh to London. The two steam locas had swapped places and worked the Edinburgh - Newcastle-upon-Tyne leg.<br />

<p>This substantial footbridge crosses the Whiteadder Water (river) at Abbey St Bathans in the Lammermuir Hills. So far as I could see it simply leads to Shannabank Wood, where there is a footpath that follows the line of the river. The Whiteadder Water rises in these hills and then eventually joins the River Tweed in England before entering the North Sea at Berwick-upon-Tweed. <br />
<br />
Although its name suggests a larger foundation, Abbey St Bathans was originally a priory of Cistercian Nuns. The original location of the monastic accommodation is unknown today. Abbey St Bathans is at the heart of renowned walking country.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/scottierae/">Scotty Rae</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Duns<br />
<br />
This grand 14th century castle with it's Norman Keep, suspected to date back to about 1320 has been in the Hay family since 1696 that's 325 years, amazing.<br />
Here too there are film location links such as “Mrs Brown” with Judi Dench and Billy connolly, as well as the T.V. Production of “Charles and Diana.<br />
The magnificent grounds are open to public and provide a beautiful park for the locals and visitors alike. For our visit the weather though showery, allowed the occasional break in the clouds, letting the sunshine light up the wet landscape, showing off it's late autumn splendour.<br />
Cutting to the chase of some local history, it is from this market town that we of an elder generation may remember, (especially those not so clever at school) that it is from here that we find the term “dunce” meaning “a bit thick”.<br />
For the name of the town we have to go a bit further back to the ancient name for a medieval hill fort (at nearby Duns Law) which in Gaelic is “du'n”.<br />
one final note for all the motor racing fans is that, it is here at Duns you will find, the James Clark motorsport museum. One of the greatest racing drivers of all time.<br />

<p>I climbed down a steep embankment beside the Leader Water to this old pump house. This is the view from the inside looking through an old window frame with the sun kissed vegetation providing a pretty picture framed by the erm frame!</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/dontiff2/">Lincspix</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>A fine late summer evening with the low angled light hitting the woodland on the far side of the loch, a lovely serene place to be.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/scottierae/">Scotty Rae</a> posted a photo:</p>
