We went to Traquair Fair today, which takes place at Traquair House in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders. Traquair House is near the River Tweed and there are lovely views from the nearby bridge over the Tweed:
For Sunday Bridges.
The House has wonderful grounds which we always enjoy exploring when we're there. There is a lovely orchard, which has live music and craft workshops all day. The whole festival experience is more enjoyable when the weather is fine (the first time we went to Traquair Fair, it was hot and sunny and we spent all day relaxing in front of the music tent). However there is something magical about an old orchard in the rain. The lichens are magnificent on these old apple trees.
I posted more about Traquair Fair on my Over Forty Shades blog here.
