Riders on patrol

It's a tradition unique to the scottish borders and the common riding season has wound it's way round to Duns and Annan today. No english invaders were spotted on the ritual patrolling of either town's boundaries this morning, so the festivities could get underway in earnest.

The ridings are a festival of civic pride dating back hundreds of years to the times of the reivers. These days the common riding is a chance to celebrate with friends.
