    Thanks Davey B and Paul that would be perfect to keep the wife happy!

    Always a balance of good roads to ride for me and a few interesting places to keep the wife happy

    Another place worth a look is the Samye Ling Buddhist monastery on the B709 to Langholm.

    Shortly after David Bowie died there was a piece on the radio about his life, apparently at one point he was going to join a Buddhist monastery in the Scottish borders....

    A mate of mine mentioned that place, I thought he was having a laugh..........

    Not sure it’s my thing but the wife might like a look

    Samye Ling

    Definitely worth a visit.
    A great ride to get to it and they do a good cup of coffee.

    Keilder obviously for the road, The Farne Islands if you want to get off the bike for a while, Hermitage Castle, Cragside (National Trust), Holy Island and for pure scenic riding anything inland of the A1 is worth a punt.
    Someone mentioned Beamish. Well worth a visit but give yourselves a full day to explore it.

    Kelso ... have a run across to Moffatt and around St Marys Loch, or go across towards Duns then around by Lonformacus and Whiteadder reservoir towards the coast.

    You have numerous castles in easy reach from Norham to Lindisfarne , Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Alnwick, Warkworth etc.

    Your not far from the Scottish museum of Flight at East Fortune and if you go on certain days you can get access to the restoration hangar.

    There are numerous excellent roads around the area down towards Kielder, Bellingham, Otterburn etc but FFS don't tell any shed draggers or wobble box drivers

    Cragside can be added to our Holy Island, Bamburgh route for a quick visit (NT members)

    Beamish, is in the bank encase the weather is bad otherwise I don’t want to use that much riding time

    Thanks to everybody who has contributed all our routes are done and we hope to have a friend come over a couple of days who will take us out

    Really looking forward to exploring the area and hope the weather plays ball

    With the amount to do I think we will need another visit
