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 food and events. For a truly peaceful and relaxing holiday, look no further than the Scottish Borders.

From the highest hill to the deepest valley, the Scottish Borders is an area full of promise with exciting wildlife encounters, bracing cliff top walks, sunny beaches, hills and valleys so take a look at some of the best things to do. Throughout the Scottish Borders there are truly relaxing shopping opportunities, and our guide shows how each of its unique towns boasts a dazzling array of independent producers and retailers, bakers and artists. The arts and culture scene in the Borders is rich and varied and the area is teaming with historic houses, magnificent castles, romantic ruined abbeys and Roman monuments. And there’s plenty to do on an evening in the Borders with live music, theatre, cinema and comedy.
