From Peebles to Kelso a group of bookshop owners have created a beautifully illustrated leaflet to make sure book lovers and visitors can find their shops.
Rosamund de la Hey of the Mainstreet Trading Company in St Boswells said: “The Scottish Borders has some fantastic bookshops – some in prominent locations, some hidden away. We thought it would be good to work together to promote ourselves, and to show our customers the range and quality of the shops in the region.”
Other participants on the trail are Hoolet’s Books in Peebles, Last Century Books in Innerleithen, The Bookroom & Masons of Melrose, The Border Reader at Old Melrose, FoundItAtLast at Newton Don near Kelso, and Latimer Books in Kelso.
The trail is in the form of an illustrated map of the Tweed and some of its literary landmarks.
The Borders Book Trail is supported by the South of Scotland Creative Clusters Project which is a programme of business support for the creative industries – managed by Scottish Borders Council, with funding support from the European Regional Development Fund.
