No Hawick were/are the most successful team in the Scottish Rugby Championship winning it 12 times. I would have to count them up to be totally accurate but our mystery town have won it about 10 times :-D

I know you are not a rugby fan Mick, but nearly there! Robert the Bruce's heart is supposedly buried in the Abbey

yes. you will need to refine your searches by adding "scottish" and even then scour and filter the results thrown up. brings back memories of school rugby

Yes it is indeed Mick got there late last night!

Here's Gattonside bridge from Geograph with 2 of the 3 Eildon Hills nicely captured behind before the bridge was strengthened. Its appearance now is less wire-like and more girder-like.

I only saw it this morning and, for some reason, the posts about it were not all in my listing. When I submitted my answers, hey presto, a slew of comments all appeared above my answers. Guess my steam powered broadband needs updated or something as this "delay" happens surprisingly often.
