Golfers are also very well catered for with 21 courses in the area all offering super value for money, especially if using the freedom of the fairways incentive deal, the Roxburghe is a must and the 18 hole Minto course only a 5 minute drive from your accommodation at Barnhills.

Fishing is available on the Tweed and local tributaries such as the rivers Teviot and Slitrig as well as many local lochs in the area( permits required ). Mountain Bikers flock to the well renowned Glentress Forest near Peebles, while Craik forest south of Hawick is another excellent destination. Shooting is also always readily available on the many private estates in the area.
