MORE than 1,200 daffodil bulbs have been planted around a Peeblesshire landmark.

Volunteers at the Great Polish Map of Scotland, within the grounds of Barony Castle, took on the planting project as part of a 'National Day of Reflection' hosted by Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The daffodils have been planted around the perimeter of the map.

The day of reflection is set to take place on March 23.

A spokesperson for the Great Polish Map of Scotland said: "Over 1,200 bulbs have been planted and although it is unlikely they will be flowering by March 23 given our cold climate, we aim to remember Polish born Marie Curie and all family and friends affected by cancer and will circulate details nearer the time.

"The map and the surrounding area are in a beautiful, peaceful, wooded part of the Borders and we hope that many people will enjoy the nature, tranquillity and space that visiting this long living legacy can offer."
