Winter vacation: Why you should consider Walkerburn
I quite often complain about Walkerburn. I guess most people moan about where they are from. I would highly recommend it for a winter vacation to anyone seeking peace, snow and relaxation.
There isn’t much to do, its cold and wet (usually) and the town is so small that there is only one shop. I cannot complain about the views, as is it breathtaking here. There are hills surrounding the town like a warm hug, with beautiful greenery covering them like a thick beard. But small town life just isn’t my long term plan. Beautiful mountains thick with jungle and gorgeous sandy beaches are more my dream destination.
Enjoying the festivities
Winter brings a whole new lease of life the to town. There is so much more on offer. From pantomimes, to craft fairs and Christmas events and light festivals. It is really exciting to see such a small community come together to enjoy each others company and creativeness.
Winter vacation scenery like no other
I wanted to share with you a small collection of pictures I have taken in and around Walkerburn during this short snowy period in January. Hopefully they will help you see that Walkerburn is the perfect winter vacation choice for fun, relaxation and snow.
Here are some pictures taken around town and just outside of Walkerburn, look at the scenery!
Outside of town
I can’t say I am a huge fan of the snow usually. Its slippy and causes a complete standstill at times in the UK as we are completely unprepared. However, snow days are so much fun and Travis loves it! We cannot deny how gorgeous it makes a place look too. The white snow and clear blue sky looks quite surreal and like something out of a movie or book.
I am beginning to really appreciate the beauty of where I live.
If you are looking for a winter vacation where you can enjoy a small, quiet village which offers festive shows and snowy hikes, look no further.
