Luxury Holiday Accommodation - In the heart of the Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders, known locally as 'The Borders', stretches from the Pentland, Moorfoot and Lammermuir Hills that mark the boundary with the Lothians in the north, to the Cheviot Hills which, along with the River Tweed, mark the border with England in the south. Link to Google Maps.

There really is something for everybody. From hill walking, artisan chocolate making, shopping, fishing and world class mountain biking. We are always happy to advise or point you in the direction of activity suppliers that will ensure you have a great experience.
