This quaint little cottage was on the edge of the road at Yair, a little village in the beautiful Scottish Borders, situated 28 miles from Edinburgh. Surrounding the area is Yair Forest, also known as Lindinney Wood, it sits close to one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in the world – the River Tweed. Yair Forest and the River Tweed are inextricably linked as ‘yair’ is the old Scots word for a fish trap. The origin of ‘yair’ in this case is thought to link to King Malcolm, who in 1156, granted the monks of Kelso eight acres of land, along with the right to build a fish trap.

Photography been a longtime hobby that has now become an obsessive passion. I am fairly eclectic in my choice of subjects, and try to see beauty in most things. Thank you for dropping by my site and I welcome any feedback and tips.
