Westruther SWI enjoyed a lovely day out in Edinburgh recently.

A scenic ride up on the Borders railway, followed by a stroll down the Royal Mile, brought the group to Holyrood Palace where they had an interesting audio tour round the Palace, followed by a visit to the exhibition celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday - ‘Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen’s Wardrobe’.

Members enjoyed seeing the Queen’s sumptuous gowns with most of the dresses created for specific overseas occasions, plus a selection of royal hats. An excellent lunch and time for some retail therapy on the way back completed an enjoyable day.
