Annual Camp




This year, the boys were given permission to set up camp in the grounds of Traquair House, Innerleithen on Friday. This house dates back to 1107 and was originally a hunting lodge for the kings and queens of Scotland. After playing hide and seek in the maze, the boys settled down for the night.


We set off early the next morning following the Minchmoor Road (Southern Upland way). The Minchmoor Road was at one time the main route across southern Scotland and the old road east from Traquair has been in use for over 800 years. This route also passes the Cheese Well, where the ancient tradition of an offering of cheese thrown in would allow travellers to pass unmolested thanks to the protection of the fairies!!!


We then set up camp at Yair. It was another early morning on Sunday, as the boys got up at the crack of dawn to cook breakfast, pack the tents then walk back to Galashiels in time for the morning service.
