Guest House owners in the Scottish Borders say the Olympics are putting people off from coming up north.
At what is usually the busiest time of year for the tourism industry, bookings are down.
Chris and Carol Longden run a Guest House in Jedburgh.
Carol says: "There are noticeably less bookings the last 2 weeks. I think it might be a combination of things, mostly the Olympics. I don't think people are travelling up North which is a bit worrying."
