Scottish Borders Some of our favourites

The Scottish Borders may rightly be called the" forgotten" land. In the rush to the Highlands most people hardly give it a glance or a chance. Yet there is so much to see and do, all in a terrific landscape.

Things to do

A mere 100,000 people live in the whole of the Borders area, so you have plenty of room, quiet roads and no parking problems! Here is a small personal selection of the "best bits".


Monteviot Gardens (3 miles) offer walks through riverside gardens and ancient woods.
Teviot Water Gardens (5 miles) are a delightful experience.
Mertoun Gardens open (10 miles) Saturday and Sundays, with walks along the river Tweed.


Three miles from Meadhon House is Harestanes Visitor Centre where a variety of walks is available through woods, along river, over hills and glens.

You can walk the first leg of St Cuthbert's Way (14 miles of country and river walks) by taking the bus from Jedburgh which brings you in 20 minutes to Melrose, just follow the signs back from there.


Within 30 minutes drive you will find some 12 golf courses where you can play almost whenever you wish including Jedburgh, Roxburghe Hotel and Cardona golf courses. Amongst them is a championship course at The Roxburghe.

Half price green fees are available through: Green Fee Savers or try the Freedom of the Fairways scheme, ScotBorders Golf Freedom.


Why not try a Tandem for the day? This makes easy work of the hills. Several cycle routes have been established by the Tourist Board.

Bicycle hire details at Christopher Rainbow.


Fishing is available on the internationally renowned River Tweed and its tributaries.

Woollens and Crafts

For years the woollen industry was the main-stay of the Borders economy.

Lambs wool, Cashmere and Tweeds can be bought in Mill shops at very reasonable prices.

There is a large group of excellent craftspeople in the Borders, among the best of which are Cuero Leather at Monteviot and Lilliesleaf Pottery at Smailholm.

Historic Houses & Abbeys

There are too many to mention but Traquair, Thirlestane, Mellerstain, Floors and Abbotsford stand out.

The Border Abbeys are within easy reach.
