On Saturday 26th Colin + a couple of members of the congregation joined a group from the wider presbytery to walk the first part of the St Cuthbert's way. This 'Pilgrimage Taster' was organised by Rev. Peter Wood, the Lothian/Borders Presbytery Mission Officer. The day began with torrential rain and the start of the walk was delayed while we waited for the downpour to stop. Stop it did, though, and the while we ascended the Eildons we were rewarded with some spectacular views of the Tweed Valley - including a rainbow over distant Galashiels. From then on the walk progressed through a sodden, but glorious landscape. We had a break at Bowden kirk and then, after a trek alongside a turbulent river Tweed, arrived at at St Boswell's kirk hall for a final cup of tea.
