This picture looking down the centre of Rothbury was taken on a cold December morning when the temptation to pop into one of the cafes and indulge in a coffee and cake was irresistable.

 Rothbury, centre of town

 And here is a nice view across the River Coquet.

 To the south and west of Rothbury is the wildlife reserve at Fontburn. To quote from NWT

"Fontburn is a very popular trout fishery with rainbow and blue trout. The main areas of conservation interest are around the reservoir margins. An area of wetland and scrub to the north is now being grazed by Exmoor ponies to maintain the diversity of interest."
