Tour Scotland wee video of photographs of Peebles, Scottish Borders. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day. This Scottish town is located at the confluence of the River Tweed and Eddleston Water, locally called the Cuddy. Initially a market town, Peebles played a role in the woollen industry of the Scottish Borders up until the 1960s. The annual local festival is called the Beltane, and involves, as with many Borders festivals, a Common Riding.
