The Scottish Borders region
The Borders is a land of beautiful landscapes where wild upland hills give way to green and pleasant valleys on a journey to the sea. They offer outstanding facilities for cycling, hill walking, driving and bird watching. The Borders has been fought over since Roman times, was the cradle for the spread of Christianity in Scotland and the North of England, and home to the lawless Border Reivers who bequeathed the words blackmail and bereaved to the English language.
For walker whether you want a gentle stroll or something more demanding, the Borders is home to 1500 miles of dedicated walking routes and six national walks. Walkers will find themselves within half a mile of the Southern Upland Way, while St Cuthbert's Way starts in Melrose and heads for Lindisfarne. The Border Abbey Ways circular walk passes through attractive countryside, by the four great 12th Century Abbeys of Melrose, Jedburgh, Kelso and Dryburgh and through several Border Towns. Anglers have the Tweed practically on the doorstep and there are plenty of stocked lochs nearby. Melrose has an excellent 9-hole golf course on the shoulder of the Eildon Hills, one of 21 excellent courses in the area. There are tennis courts in the park at Melrose, riding about 4 miles away and, of course, this is the heart of rugby country, with the Greenyards at Melrose being the home of the rugby Sevens game.

For less active days, there is a wealth of stately homes, ruined abbeys, historic castles and peel towers to visit - the nearest is probably Sir Walter Scott's home of Abbotsford, just four miles distant - as well as some lovely gardens nearby like Monteviot and Mertoun. The beaches of East Lothian, Berwickshire and Northumberland are within an hour's drive. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is 9 miles south of Berwick on Tweed - connected to the mainland by a causeway, covered by the sea twice a day. Check the tide tables at www.northumberlandlife.org/holy-island/.
From Seahouses you can take a boat trip to the National Trust Farne Islands to visit the seal and bird colonies. And if you wish to visit Edinburgh, you could take advantage of the frequent bus service and leave the car at home. For more information on the Borders check out the website http://www.discovertheborders.co.uk
There is a cinema in nearby Galashiels www.pavilioncinema.co.uk and a small theatre in Melrose www.thewyndmelrose.com.
Major supermarkets - ASDA, Tesco and Marks & Spencer are available a short drive away, in Galashiels.
