Scottish Borders

A lovely holiday destination in its own right...

The Scottish Borders stretch from rolling hills and moorland in the west, through gentler valleys to the rich agricultural plains of the east, and then on to the rocky Berwickshire coastline with secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages

The hills of the Cheviots, the Lammermuirs, the Moorfoots and the Pentlands, along with the River Tweed and its tributaries creates a Border countryside of different facets and unique personality, with friendly towns and charming villages, castles, abbeys, stately homes and museums.

Ancient fortifications, battle-fields and ruined abbeys can be found throughout the Borders, forming the backdrop to a rich historical past. Of note is Melrose Abbey where the heart of the great Scottish King, Robert the Bruce is kept. Two miles east of Galashiels lies Abbotsford, former home to the great novelist Sir Walter Scott and historic Traquair, said to be Scotland's oldest inhabited house, which has connections with the Jacobite Risings and has been visited by 27 monarchs, including Mary Queen of Scots.

Visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of this region at their own pace or alternatively there's a host of outdoor activities suitable for all ages, including 21 golf courses, some of the best fishing in Scotland, horse riding along sign-posted routes and quiet country lanes and some superb on and off road cycling. For those looking for some `Retail Therapy' the Borders is famed for producing quality tweeds and tartans, and has a great variety of local crafts workshops and outlets.
