Our trip to Andrew Elliot, private independent woolen mill


Vintage fabric production, the heritage of the Borders textile industry.

We went to look at the tartans and fabrics, and then were kindly asked if we wanted to see the machines working. It was an amazing experience that Bobbie, Tania and I had.

Rob Beaton showed us around and explained the history behind Elliot’s. It was so noisy but we heard some incredible stories. If you are interested to go and have a look around, make sure you have time as Mr Beaton has lots to tell you!
