Taken beside the Tweed River in Peebles, Scotland. The Tweed flows from the Scottish Borders, through the town of Peebles and on into the North Sea at Berwick-upon-Tweed, England, forming the border between Scotland and England along part of its route. Initially a market town, Peebles played a role in the woollen industry of the Scottish Borders up until the 1960s. Although one woollen mill remains operational in the town, the industrial composition of Peebles has changed; the town is now home to many people who commute to work in Edinburgh as well as being a popular tourist destination, especially in the summer. In the mid-to-late 1800s, this included health tourism, centring around hydropathic establishments, which over time morphed into hotel format, with Peebles Hydro Hotel being one of the few survivors of that era. Peebles has the highest shoe shop to population ratio in the UK.
