    I would be grateful if someone could advise on a reasonable site to launch in the Scottish Borders. We live by Earlston, but I am a bit wary this may be to close to the East coast if the balloon drifts!

    Hi spartagates,

    We’d be happy to help. As a rule of thumb, on the average day in Britain the balloon will drift south east. With that in mind, if you head south west in the direction of Moffat you may find a more reliable launch site.

    We are currently in the process of discontinuing this forum as we launch our new website (which you can find on while we update our address registry). You might be better placed to email us at and one of our team will be happy to help.
