Marking the start of Teviot Tartan Time were Roxburgh Area School pupils (back, from left)  Nealeah Manderson (13), Niamh Glassey-Latta (13), Grace Arnesen (12), Annabelle Toms (12), Ben Robb (12) and Luke Tamblyn (13);  front (from left) Troy McArley (13), Georgia Buchan (12) and Annalee Black (13).

The tartan mufti day was well supported. 

School pupils and early childhood centres along with business staff in the valley embraced the theme, Tartan Time committee member Trudie Marsh said.

The district’s Scottish celebrations are in their seventh year and the T&G Teviot Valley Wearable Tartan Art Awards tonight  in Ettrick has sold out.

The event will be staged in a fruit coolstore for the first time.

Tartan time finishes tomorrow  with a Kilt Canter, starting from Pinders Pond.
