The Scottish Borders region

The Scottish Borders is a land of rolling hills, castles, abbeys, gardens, woods, flowing rivers and strong traditions. The river Tweed is the artery that feeds the Border lands and keeps many an angler happy. For the walker there is the Southern Upland Way, whilst this region caters extensively for the cyclist with The Borderloop and The Tweed Cycle Way. Another jewel of the Borders is its east coast and seascapes, with Eyemouth and St Abbs, which are lovely fishing villages. There are many historic houses and abbeys to visit, including Traquair House, Floors Castle, Thirlestane Castle and the abbeys at Kelso, Melrose, Dryburgh and Jedburgh. With many specialist gardens also open to the public. For the golfer there are 21 golf courses in this region alone. The Scottish Borders prides itself as Scotland's leading short break destination.
