The Scottish Borders has a fascinating and turbulent past which belies the serene landscape. The many stately homes, haunted castles and magnificent abbeys are a testament to a rich and occasionally tumultuous history. This stunning heritage is kept alive through numerous wonderfully preserved monuments and unique local traditions like the Common Ridings, the oldest horse-riding festival in the world.
Many come to holiday here for a gentler pace of life. It should also come as no surprise that an area so rich in hills and moorland, valleys and rivers should offer an enormous amount of outdoor activities such as fishing on the tweed, golf and walking. But it's not all peace and quiet. Alongside these more sedate activities there is world class mountain biking to be had at two 7stanes mountain bike centres. This area is also the home of Scottish Rugby with the annual Rugby Sevens tournament a hot-bed of passion and intense local rivalry.
This region is also famed for its textiles, a major attraction for many is to browse and buy beautiful tweeds and tartans and the highest quality knitwear direct from the local mills and shops. Being surrounded by farms, foodies will also be catered for with an abundance of fresh local produce being readily available.
