The Scottish Borders Guide

The moment you step into the Scottish Borders you find yourself in a landscape of gently rolling hills, wild unspoilt moorland, small river valleys, miles of country lanes and distinctive towns and villages where the old Scots tongue can still be heard. A turbulent history has created a legacy of romantic castles, historic abbeys and great country houses just waiting to be explored.

A lower than average rainfall, clean air and sunshine combine to make the Borders sparkle with natural beauty. In the bright spring months, fresh new growth fills the valleys and forests, whilst fields form giant patchworks of vibrant greens and bright yellows. Enjoy time to spare on long summer days, when the sun hardly sets on the wide horizons. In the peaceful autumn months warm harvest tones fill the valleys and forests, and mauves and purples tint the moors.

The Scottish Borders have a special magic and timeless quality which can't be adequately described in words, a visit is the only way to 'feel the glow'.

Explore the quaint Border towns and rich countryside views of rolling hills and winding rivers. Discover the traditional coaching inns frequented in the past by local literary figures, such as James Hogg and Sir Walter Scott. Savour and indulge in the wealth of creative and innovative menus developed using our local natural larder.

As Billy Connolly said on his 'World Tour of Scotland':

.... "The Scottish Borders looks more Scottish in appearance and atmosphere, it's what people think the Scottish Highlands look and feel like".....
