"The Ram" in the middle of High Street. The group getting ready for the walking tour. In the background they coach is being loaded for the Borders Day Tour. According to The Guinness Book this is the world's narrowest hotel - the Star Hotel. Note the width compared to the people and the truck - barely wider than a car garage!!!

The walking tour group after the tour. A Moffat in Moffat mailing postcards to Moffats. Alas they didn't get a Moffat postmark though :-(( Lisa busy on the certificate for John Murray - a Moffat local who amongst other things he did for us put on the theatre - a female version of "The Odd Couple".
