Tesco Eskbank,
Bonnyrigg Road,
EH22 3PP

Google Maps Link to Tesco Eskbank

Once again our friends from the Tyne Tees Area have challenged us to another game of (non compulsory) rounders at Lindisfarne Island. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet up with our English friends and enjoy all the marvels of this interesting island with all the fun and banter that goes hand in hand with this ever popular event. Plus we also have the chance to drive on some fantastic border roads.

England v Scotland in 2013

The 10:30 departure from Tesco Eskbank will give us a leisurely run down to Lindisfarne. Remember that once we're in the car park you will need to purchase a parking ticket for the day.


  • Flags and banners flying for our grand entrance to Lindisfarne.

  • BBQ (Bring your own food to cook)

  • BBQ's are provided by the club

  • Rounders (Scotland v England)

  • The causeway will be open from 11:35 to 19:00 on this date so it will give us plenty of time to have a BBQ and rounders bash afterwards.

    What a fab day, only just finished cleaning the car, think I brought home half the beach, but it was worth it to beat the English on there own turf. Heather is being put to bed  to much champers ,Rosie!!!! Would be great if you could have a return match on home soil just to beat them again, bill you are a legend and Scottish hero you will be remembered in history with the likes of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce , although I must admit my efforts were rubbish, see you's all soon .hope you all had a safe journey home

    Great day yesterday, well done team Scotland.  As Marshall said we should play them on our own turf, would suggest my own turf Bannockburn but we have already beat them there.
    Robert !!!!!!!

    Another great day out. Despite the wind and tide we had a fun day. We have just managed to get the salt off our bottom-oops meant car bottom. Don`t know about you guys but I can hardly move today. Old age doesn`t come itself.
    Well done everyone.

    Thanks to all the Scotland team for making the trip to Holy Island to give us English a jolly good thrashing!  Let's make sure we book a date next year WITHOUT a hurricane!!
