'Lighting the Borders' - Borders Heritage Festival

The Scottish Borders
Heritage

To re-enact the lighting of signal fires, 25+ historic sites will be illuminated across the Scottish Borders. Eleven performances that reflect historic and cultural diversity have been programmed at a range of historic sites. A variety of lighting will be used to form a chain across the landscape at dusk on each evening. All buildings in the sequence will be colour washed or highlighted in blue for three nights from 1–3 September.

Follow the chain of light: Aikwood Tower, Ayton Castle, Bowhill House, Coldstream Community Centre, Duns Castle, Duns Law, Duns Parish Church, Eyemouth Fort, Fatlips Castle, Floors Castle, Gunsgreen House, Hermitage Castle, Hume Castle, Jedburgh Abbey, Jedburgh Castle Jail, Kelso Abbey, Kelso Town Hall, Mary Queen of Scots House, Melrose Abbey, Neidpath Castle, Newark Castle, Old Parish & St Paul’s Church, Peniel Heugh, Riddell Tower, Smailholm Tower, Stobs Camp and Thirlestane Castle.
