Hume Castle, Scottish Borders

This morning we departed our lodgings in Melrose and embarked on a tour as follows:

  • First to Johnston’s of Elgin Textile Mill in Hawick, about 30 minutes from Melrose. Here we were provided with an escorted tour of the mill which produces a wide range of products predominantly made from cashmere but also some lambswool. We availed of some refreshments here and made some purchases. Photographs of the manufacturing process are no longer permitted but images can be found on this blog post covering a past visit.
