The Scottish Borders

So much to explore

The Scottish Borders has lots to explore, from the stunning cliffs and sandy beaches of the Berwickshire coast to the beautiful countryside and quaint little towns of the Borders. Edinburgh is just 50 miles away and Northumberland just over the Border. The Scottish Borders offers an extensive array of things to do and places to visit. Here we give just a few suggestions of places of interest nearby.

Whatever you chose to do the Borders has the space to do it – ride, walk, cycle or drive, quiet country roads and paths wind through the rolling border hills and valleys. Enjoy a fishing holiday in stunning settings. 

You can take advantage of the numerous established golf courses throughout the borders; details at Visit Scotland.

The charming Border towns and villages are a joy to visit, with local shops and places to eat, supporting regional food produce. For families, visit Jedburghs own excellent Swimming Pool and Leisure Centre – plenty for everyone to do!

Steeped in history the Scottish Borders has many abbeys, castles and great houses to visit. Or take home more than memories by sampling the inspirational work from the “craftsmen” in the area.
