I'm aware of the posts about Peter Scott. The company has been very sympathetic to the need to preserve Pesco's archive in Hawick. Today the Heritage Hub uplifted some very important records to add to its existing holdings. Here's an example, an extract from a Peter Scott outing to Teindside 1919 ... See MoreSee Less

Bill Elliot: "May be of some interest following the latest outing by Hawick Scout Pipe Band for the Reivers Festival. It was taken 1954/55 outside the Buccleuch Memorial and was, I think the first outing of the reformed band in their new kilts."

Michael BellSadly it has though. The buildings was maintained and looked after back then. Now they are looking shabby because of neglect.

Branxholme Tower as it looked in 1909, labelled here by its romantic name 'Branksome'.

Claire Douglas-HoggGreat!!! but the fort is an accident waiting to happen , I understand it's for older kids , but my 3year old managed to climb up but couldn't cross the rope bridge as the ropes are too spaced out , could do with either safety nets or a finer net covering to stop them falling thru ? I had to go rescue him before he fell off 😳

Kirsty TurnbullFantastic ! But the big fort could have had easier access for younger kids my son who is 5 can get up but doesn't like the rope bridges as he's scared he falls through could have had a bridge across for them !

Laura CrozierFantastic, but agree that fort could have better access. The small bridge on toddler climbing boat has quite large gaps for little legs to get stuck in!

Heather Collinson - MackenzieBrilliant my daughter loves it.. I agree about the seating could do with more.. Hopefully there will be more places to sit when the cafe opens.. it's just a shame that it was vandalised with eggs and graffiti in the first week of opening.. Hopefully there will be cameras or someone patrolling it to deter further damage.

Caitlin SykesIts great! Just a shame there are constantly teenagers hanging around after 4pm until very late at night. Nothing can be done about that though i suppose.

Karla McDevittThe castle too big. The gaps between the climbing bits too big. My 5 yr old couldn't climb it. A good park but not for us for a while
