Liam Eagle (3), of Roxburgh, is ready to celebrate all things Scottish with his toy bagpipes and tartan top at Teviot Valley Educare.

The valley was awash with colourful patterns yesterday as schools celebrated the beginning of the 10th annual Teviot Tartan Time with a tartan mufti day.

Teacher Janine Lemmens said the children had been learning about Scotland, drawing flags, dressing up the childcare centre’s big teddy in tartan, and trying porridge and shortbread.

The tartan mufti day was the beginning of three days of events in the valley; the Teviot Valley Wearable Tartan Art Awards takes place tonight, and the annual Kilt Canter starts tomorrow at Pinders Pond.
