Attractions & Activities

The Scottish Borders covers approx 1800 square miles, from the rolling hills and moorlands in the west to the valleys and agricultural plains of the east.

Full of picturesque villages, sweeping valleys and moorland and with many secluded coves  you can choose from world class fishing on the River Tweed, golf on our many fairways,  diving at St Abbs or riding or walking through our lovely countryside.  These are just some of the activities on offer to tempt you to stay just a bit longer. There are also many events for you to attend and enjoy such as the tradition of the Common Ridings, walking, book and folk festivals, both mountain biking and road cycling events and Highland Games, summer fairs and arts festivals.  There is something for everyone to enjoy as part of your stay.

The Scottish Borders is also home to rugby and passion and friendly rivalry inevitably emerge as the Rugby Sevens tournaments get under way through spring and summer.
