As we set of from Ingliston, the trip heads due south into the valleys and hills of the Scottish borders. Traditionally a rural farming area, the borders have some of the most beautiful vistas and natural features in Scotland. This is the land that inspired Sir Walter Scott to write his works that have gone on to popularise Scotland worldwide.
Flying through the borders we will see the border towns of Galashiels, Selkirk, Kelso and Melrose with its famous Abbey. Famous sights include the Eildon Hills, Floors Castle, Scott’s view and Thirlstaine Castle to name but a few. Some trips also include a fly past of Scotland’s oldest house at Traquair and Sir Walter Scott’s house at Abbotsford.
