The premier gateway to Scotland from the south, the magnificent Scottish Borders stretches languorously across eighteen hundred square miles, and is beautifully peppered with unique places to stay.
Boasting an exceedingly rich tapestry of landscapes, here you’ll discover everything from rolling hills and wide open moorland, to sun-dappled valleys and secluded, rocky coves along the iconic Berwickshire coastline.
In other words, this is a place that’s ripe for exploring, whether on two legs or four wheels! Oh, and if you’ve brought your mountain bike, you can go your own way, or test your adrenaline levels at two world-class 7stanes centres.
Of course, there’s plenty of history and heritage to get your teeth into here, too. Visit the many incredible castles, abbeys, museums, and stately homes that all tell the most spellbinding tales…
…or time your visit for the Common Ridings, one of the oldest equestrian festivals in the world. Tweeds and tartans are readily available from the local mills and shops, too – the perfect souvenirs!
Meanwhile, if you head for the River Tweed, you’ll find some of the very best fishing in Scotland. Another age-old Scottish activity, golf, is readily available too, with 21 clubs to choose from.
And with a rich natural larder of ingredients that enliven the menus of many friendly inns and restaurants, you may well find yourself returning to the Scottish Borders a whole lot more than once.
