The Scottish Borders

Get away from the crowds and explore quieter tracks here

Welcome to the Scottish Borders!

The pride and passion of Borderers is well known! Steeped in history, traditions are kept very much alive with local events, as well as abbeys, castles and great houses to visit. Whether you are coming for a short break or an extended stay, we can recommend some great places where you can relax and make the most of your stay in the Scottish Borders. Stretching from the dramatic sandstone cliffs, secluded coves and sandy beaches off the Berwickshire coast, across fertile farming country, to the Tweed Valley hilltops inland, this region has it all. Whatever the season, whatever your pace, the Scottish Borders has space – to ride, walk, cycle or drive quiet country roads and paths.

Fish wonderful waters and golf stunning settings, where you’ll see nature’s best! The charming Border towns and villages are a joy to visit, with local shops and places to eat, supporting local producers. If you are looking for a truly peaceful and relaxing holiday, it’s easy to get away from the crowds and explore the quieter tracks, hidden villages and secret corners of the Scottish Borders. Home of the internationally-famous Melrose Sevens Rugby Tournament, Kelso Races, and the Jim Clark Rally, the Scottish Borders caters for all sporting tastes. There’s a warm welcome guaranteed in the Scottish Borders… and you’re invited.
