If you are ever in my area, this is worth visiting: its a small museum in the Borders town of Duns and it tells the very moving story of our local F1 World Champion, Jim Clark. The room itself is not particularly huge but is packed with photographs, trophies and other regalia relating to Jim Clark's career. Jim was (and still is) worshipped up here and he lived and farmed near Chirnside - his grave can be found in Chirnside church.
Duns is around 17 miles away from me, but thanks to the superb and very quiet roads, its less than 20 minutes drive. http://www.scotborders.gov.uk/outabout/visit/museums/3240.html
