What’s on West Scottish Borders

One of the most scenic stretches of the Tweed Valley starts here, with the handsome royal burgh of Peebles. Downstream you’ll find Innerleithen, with it famous Robert Smails Printing Works and the sulphurous spa water of St Ronans Wells, once frequented by Sir Walter Scott. Close to Innerleithen is Traquair House, the oldest continuously inhabited house in Scotland, and the Traquair House Brewery which first started here over 400 years ago. The beauty of the hills around Peebles can be explored on foot or by bike and, from city itself, cyclists can hook up to the clearly signposted 90-mile Tweed Cycleway.
