This is night No.99/2019. We're now pitched at Melrose C&MC Site, in the Borders town of Melrose, in fact the site is in the centre of Melrose!

This is a very welcome return to 'touring' having spent most of September and October on a seasonal pitch in Oban. Feels quite nice to be embarking on a shorter break.

I've been to this site a few times, and it is a great location for walking. I was last here in Sep 2018 in my old Familia, but I've visited in my old Puck and, previous to that, my camper vans.

We had a pleasant and uneventful 3 hour trip to get here. The weather was nice when we arrived around 1300. Done the basic 'setting up' then took the dogs for a run around across the road near the rugby stadium. Walked around the rather impressive Melrose Parish Church.

After returning to the van, I finished setting up, filling the tanks, connecting the TV to the bollard, then headed into the town for a nice walk up to the former railway station, then followed the old line back to the site.

The site is sandwiched between the primary school, a small housing scheme, and the rugby ground. It's still a fine, small, site and is very well kept. There's also a Co-op literally a stones throw from the entrance, so very hand for supplies.

It's almost like the dogs have some sort of familiarity with this place.

Looking forward to spending a few days here and getting some walks in. Weather looks cold, but generally pretty dry apart from Tuesday.

Took the dogs for an evening walk, past the church and down to the Tweed.

The lovely 'ambient' light around the Abbey.

The tennis club were in action next door to the site.
