Plans are in place to re-open Thirlestane Castle in Lauder to visitors this summer.

However, the Thirlestane Castle Trust is appealing to anyone who may have some spare time, whether its a few hours once a week or a day once a fortnight, to consider joining their team of volunteers to help with meeting and greeting visitors and conducting guided tours.

Edward Maitland-Carew, resident trustee, said: "We are indebted to The Friends of Thirlestane who do an important job welcoming our visitors and sharing the castle’s interesting stories with them.”
