Soutra Aisle


#1

I went down into the Borders on Saturday. Shot a few stills down at Soutra Aisle. This is south of Edinburgh and the Pentlands. Pretty much into the Borders. The building in the picture is a medieval friary/hospital. The wind farm is pretty extensive, it runs on both sides of the A68.

Nice photos Geoff!

When is that building dated exactly, do you know?

It is said to have been founded by Malcolm the Maiden in 1164

Pretty sure my gaff won’t still be standing in 85 years, never mind 850+
