Hundreds of people are expected at the two-day Border Reivers festival in Hawick this weekend.
The event celebrates the myths and dramas of the area in the 16th and 17th centuries when the notorious Reivers were active.
Feuding families of Reivers often conducted raids across the border to England to steal cattle and many were hanged by the authorities.
The festival features drama, song, poetry and re-enactments to show what life was like in those turbulent times 400 years ago.
There will also be a torchlight procession through the town this evening.
A wet and windy start, with overnight rain clearing during the morning. Gales possible in exposure with gusts reaching 50-60mph.
Sunny spells will then follow but also blustery showers feeding in along the strong west wind.
Milder highs of 13°C, so feeling warm in shelter.
