The Society's annual Summer Outing will be to Abbotsford, Sir Walter Scott's house near Melrose. As always, the outing will be on the first Saturday in June, which in 2014 is 1st June. The coach will leave Sainsbury's car park at 9.30 am and head for Selkirk with a short break at Dobbies, Dalkeith which is also the home to Butterfly World. There will be sufficient time in Selkirk for having lunch (bring your own or buy locally) and looking around before reaching Abbotsford at 2.00 pm for a guided tour of the house. Afterwards, the party will eat at The Green Tree Hotel, Peebles at 5.15 pm.
