Well its official the Scottish Borders is Scotland’s new destination. Up there with New York, London and Paris. Well on a mug at least. You know you’ve arrived as a visitor destination, when someone decides to add you to a mug. These lovely china mugs can be bought at Bank House Living, based in Lauder and newly opened in Melrose. Take one home as a gift from your holiday or buy one just for yourself.
Filling your Scottish Borders Mug
To fill your mug head for the Country Kitchen Deli just down the hill from Bank House Living. They have an excellent selection of teas and coffees, including their own special blend of Melrose coffee. They also have a nice range of chocolates and Border Biscuits. It’s one of the few places I can buy my favourite Ferguson’s rose and violet creams. An old fashioned chocolate but delicious. Or head further down the hill to Dalgetty’s and purchase a sweet treat. A Border Tart, Ecclefechan Tart or a Selkirk Bannock or something sweeter!
So buy a mug and spread the word. The Scottish Borders is the new destination.
