Steeped in history and good old Scottish/English rivalry, it was the cradle for the spread of Christianity in Scotland and the north of England. The Borders is a place of beautiful landscapes and a wonderful place to explore by foot, bike, car or bus.
The Borders is fairly well know too for some of the north’s major sporting events including the Melrose Sevens Rugby Tournament in April, the Kelso Races and The River Tweed is a mecca for salmon and trout anglers. When you add to this, stately homes, beautiful abbeys and fantastic transport links to Edinburgh and beyond, The Scottish Borders make for a great holiday destination.
