The Scottish Borders region

The Scottish Borders offer the perfect holiday location to suit a wide range of interests. Local attractions include beaches and areas of spectacular natural beauty including Coldingham, St Abbs Head and Bamburgh, historical houses, priories and abbeys and sporting activities including golf, trail and beach riding, cycling on nearby cycle-routes through the unspoilt Berwickshire countryside, hot-air ballooning, fishing on the rivers Tweed and the Whiteadder and off-road driving.

The Borders has a dramatic history and Duns is an ideal base to explore both the east and west borders. Nearby historic houses and sites include Manderston and Mellerstain, Hume Castle, Floors Castle, Kelso Abbey, Smailholm Tower, Norham Castle, Paxton House, Coldingham Priory and Ladykirk Church.


Duns is a thriving market town in the Scottish Borders offering a selection of high-quality local shops – bakery, delicatessen, greengrocer, chemist, coffee and gift shops – and a small supermarket.
