Durham

County Durham

 

Heading south from Edinburgh, we stopped at Melrose Abbey in the Borders.

 

View through a window at Melrose Abbey. You can see that the weather was still misty and moist.

  Road across the tidal flats to Holy Island (Lindisfarne). The road goes under water every high tide.
  The military exterior of Bamburgh Castle.
  The more domestic buildings inside the castle, dating from around 1910.
  Our "B&B" in Durham: we stayed in Durham Castle, which is now part of the University of Durham.

From Durham, on the east coast, we cut across to the west coast at Eskdale.
