SRGC Discussion Weekend 2017
The 2017  DWE will again be held in Peeblesshire  with all the  the delights of the Scottish Borders. This area of outstanding beauty and rich history offers ruined castles, sweeping valleys, magnificent forests and wonderful things to see and do.

The organizing team invites you to the modern Cardrona Hotel, sitting by the River Tweed, midway between historic Peebles and Innerleithen. With views of the Border hills, this 4-star hotel offers spacious and comfortable accommodation, an award-winning restaurant, an 18 hole golf course and a spa. Even dogs are welcome.  Peebles and the Borders are easy to reach, with major routes touching the boundaries of the region. Peebles is about thirty minutes by car from Edinburgh and an hour from Glasgow, Newcastle and Carlisle. Airports at Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle are within easy distance. There is a twice-hourly bus service between Peebles and Edinburgh.
Saturday morning offers you free time at the hotel or further afield.
Peebles is a Royal Burgh and a picturesque market town of unspoilt character. Stroll through its medieval alleyways or follow its walkways along the beautiful River Tweed. The traditional High Street boasts fine
independent shops and a good selection of top quality eateries. A guided visit to the Royal Botanic Garden’s satellite at Dawyck promises magnificent trees and autumn colour in mid-October. Traquair House, one of the oldest and most romantic in Scotland, is only seven miles away and is well worth a visit; it houses a privately run brewery. Staying with the historic theme, Neidpath Castle, dating from 1370, lies on a bend on the river Tweed and is a pleasant walk one mile out of Peebles. Both Peebles and Innerleithen are within easy walking distance along the river from the hotel and the latter also provides a wide range of attractions. For those who wish to stay longer, there is a wealth of possibilities within driving distance of the hotel.
A full breakdown of prices and a booking form will be found in the 2017 Year Book and Secretary’s Pages when that becomes available
