Bob and Rose Baird often create ripples when they kayak on the River Tweed, but the old adage ‘never rely on what you think you know’ counters thoughts of a Scots attempt to reclaim Berwick by sea.

They paddle with peaceful intent, celebrating the unity of two countries living in harmony along a common border.

Proud Scots with a love of Northumberland they say that they “find Nirvana kayaking the length of the Tweed and Northumberland coastline, one of the most relaxing areas of Britain”.

The Bairds are members of Berwick Sailing (and Canoe) Club and are also kayak instructors who help candidates progress towards the gold accolade in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
