Chirnside, Ninewells, Chirnside Bridge

Sunday 14 May 2017, 2.12 pm.  A walk around Chirnside, then the path not far from North Lodge, signed as the David Hume Way, and back again through the village.

The village of Chirnside, is in Scotland, about 9 miles from Berwick-on-Tweed. It boasts connections with racing driver Jim Clark (1936 a 1968), and the philosopher David Hume (1711 a 1776), who spent his childhood at Ninewells.

I took this meandering walk after reading about it on an information board. I could have extended it, or improved it by looking it up online beforehand . . .

The lovliest section is through the Ninewells area, through the woods and along the Whiteadder River.

I haven't seen so much wild garlic in one spot for a long time.

When I reached the road, with the bridge and the paper mill, I turned back along the path towards Ninewells.

That's beautiful! The wild garlic has put on a real show round here as well

The wildflowers in general seem to be brilliant this year. I do like wild garlic . . .
