It would be nice to think that it is always as quiet and tranquil as it was when we visited. I suspect it does attract a fair few visitors. Constructed as a suspension bridge to link England and Scotland. Lovely views of The Tweed and...More

You can still drive right down to the bridge to view it, but it is currently closed so you cannot drive over. They are trying to raise funds to do the necessary restoration so it may be quite a while until it is reopened.

I saw that you could drive over the bridge to Scotland on tv and decided that this was a ‘must do’ So cross we did, holding our breath as we passed between the posts. Glad I went in my Up! Rather than the 4 x4...More
