May 21st 2019
Cafe of the week for me this week is Eskdalemuir Community Hub & Old School Cafe which once again gave much needed food and shelter on yesterdays cycle adventure, an oasis for cyclists/ travellers.
Open Tues to Sun 10 till 4.30pm (Sunday lunch 12 till 3pm)
Eskdalemuir is not on any main roads but on some less travelled B roads through some remote countryside which can make a great excursion by car or by bike and not too far from Innerleithen and very little traffic.
Eskdalemuir’s biggest surprise.is the Samye Ling Tibetan Centre was founded in 1967 and remains the largest Buddhist Monastery and Tibetan Centre in the western world. At the heart of the centre is the spectacular temple built during the 1980s., but there is also some interest in the grounds .Visitors are welcome to visit the temple and grounds at Samye Ling; there’s more information on their website.
Some great walks nearby and the Southern Upland Way passes nearby
The Prehistoric trail is a circular car/ bike Tour to some historic sites around Eskdalemiur and a great way to find out about the history of the area . Nine Prehistoric Sites to visit with walks from the car. (Forts are usually on the top of steep approaches.)

Last year Simon and cocker spaniel Barney From Kirk Yetholm Hostel completed the Southern Upland Way
May 3rd 2019
Cleikum Mill, 1 mile off the Southern Upland Way, is an ideal overnight stopping point for others undertaking this adventure.
The Southern Upland Way is 214 miles long and runs across Southern Scotland’s widest reach, from Portpatrick on the south west coast to Cockburnspath on the east coast. It crosses empty and varied walking country, in some stretches a real challenge for the experienced walker and in others suitable for the less ambitious.
Barney the 14 year old cocker spaniel from Kirk Yetholm Hostel has finally finished the Southern Upland Way after years if walking the way stage by stage. Including 9 months getting back to health in December 2015 after a leg injury.
Back on home territory now Simon and Barney are enjoying gentle walks around the lovely village of Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders. Why not make a stay there yourself.
Or if you would rather have a go at the Southern Upland way yourself don’t forget there is ideal walkers accommodation at Cleikum Mill Lodge, just a mile from the way.
