What’s on Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders is noted for its hills and moorlands, valleys and rivers, and its rocky Berwickshire coastline. The area has many friendly towns and picturesque villages to explore - as well as castles, abbeys, stately homes and museums. The Scottish Borders is a paradise for hillwalkers and cyclists of all abilities - and the River Tweed provides some of the best fishing in Scotland. Famous for its textiles, the Scottish Borders is an ideal place to buy knitwear, tweeds and tartans. It’s also rugby union territory - and if you time it right, you may also get the chance to go to one or more of the games in the Scottish Borders annual Rugby Sevens tournament. The somewhat turbulent history of the Scottish Borders is commemorated every year in the Common Ridings and other annual local festivals.
