OPEN days at Soutra Aisle, the site of a medieval hospital and friary, are being held this weekend - August 24, 25 and 26 - at 2pm each day.

It lies half-a-mile along the B6368 from its junction with the A68.

The Soutra Research Project is participating in the local commemoration of the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.

The English army left Berwick and travelled via Soutra, staying overnight, on its way to the battle. This was the standard route for English medieval invasions and used on more than 90 occasions.
