Plan a Stay in the Scottish Borders
With rolling hills and moorland in the West to the picturesque valleys and beautiful Berwickshire coastline in the East, it would be a pity not to stay awhile in the Scottish Borders instead of just passing through as many travelers do. Stately Homes, Castles and magnificent Abbeys are testament to its rich history. If outdoor pursuits such as fishing, golf and walking can’t tempt you then perhaps our tantalisingly menus which offer fresh, locally sourced vegetables, succulent meats and freshly-caught seafood might do the trick. Be assured that you will always receive a warm welcome from the ‘Borderers’.
Some local places to visit
St Abbs is a picturesque fishing village at the foot of the St Abb’s Head National Nature Reserve adjacent to a Marine Reserve. An internationally important resource for wildlife, both above and below the waves.
Eyemouth is the largest town in Berwickshire, a fishing port since the 13th century. It has a busy working harbour with boats regularly fishing out of it. As well as the harbour, Eyemouth also boasts a fine sandy beach with rockpools revealed at low tide, a visitor information centre and a museum.
Berwick-upon-Tweed sits just 3 miles from the Scottish Border. A coastal town with sandy beaches and riverside walks. Walk the circuit of the Elizabethan walls taking in views across the River Tweed estuary and Berwick’s three bridges.
