In yesterday's post, I showed you the Dryburgh Abbey Hotel, where we spent the night. It's a popular place for fishermen, as it's located right on the River Tweed. It is also a dog-friendly hotel, and we saw quite a few. We had a delicious dinner, a good night's sleep, then a true Scottish breakfast, which was included in our room fee. Oh? You're wondering what a true Scottish breakfast consists of? Eggs, toast, marmalade, beans, and blood pudding. I skipped the pudding, we both skipped the haggis.
After breakfast, we walked out of the hotel, across a path, and onto the grounds of Dryburgh Abbey.
I love this particular view from the side, with the crumbling walls underscoring how dramatically beautiful the stonework was, as it reached to the heavens.
And how about chicken man? He was walking through the crowd on Princes Street, without a care in the world.
Just down the hill from the castle was this ice cream shop. Of course, we stopped! Support your local dairy industry, that's our motto! (It's the cows that got us to Scotland in the first place.)
