One of our favourite Tweed Valley views. The bend in the river from the wonderful railway path. The path is smooth with only the teeniest bit of uphill, so it's great for wheelchair users and for folks who like gentle walks and cycles. Hopefully soon the lovely Caberston Farm Coffee Shop in Walkerburn will be able to re-open their doors for half-time refreshments! ... See MoreSee Less

GO Tweed ValleyHappier times ahead alert! As we prepare for the gradual reopening of the valley, we will soon launch a programme of guided experiences – from outdoor swims to themed walks, nature escapes and more – all led by locals with a deep love and knowledge of the Tweed Valley. We’re pretty excited about this and can’t wait to share more news with you soon …

While Max was resting up with a sore knee (zoomies in the house might have had something to do with it 🙄), Oscar found that his sore nose (treat burying related injury) didn't stop him enjoying sniffs and a good walk. ... See MoreSee Less

😍We would not normally have a cria this early in the year, however, Caol Ila delivered us a little white/light boy, delighted. He has 3 coats on at the moment as March in Scotland is not always cria friendly. No name yet but he is already causing havoc with all the girls. 😂 ... See MoreSee Less

A bracing walk up Minch Moor this afternoon, and a lovely walk down as dark was falling. Max and Oscar sat nicely and asked for cheddars at the Cheese Well but all they got were a few gravy bones 🦴🦴🦴 ... See MoreSee Less

Robert Smail's Printing WorksToday is International Woman's Day and we'd like to share some pictures from our Archives to mark the occasion!

During the time the Smail Family operated the Printing Works, the trade was very male-dominated. However, the Smail's did employ some women in their Shop, Office and as Print-finishers. During WWI, when many of Smail's Printers and Compositors were conscripted, women were drafted in to undertake practical printing work. It is not exactly clear what tasks they undertook, but we do know from our wages books they were paid significantly less that the men!

Here we have..
Jenny Smail - Wife of Robert Cowan Smail
'Post Card Crazy' lady - dressed up for St. Ronan's Border Games and one of our best-loved archive images
Jenny Smail - Golfing with friends at Innerleithen Golf Course
Sarah Cowan Smail - Wife of Robert Smail - founder of the Printing Works.
