Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in The Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders cover the soft, gentle hills and moorland in the west, through gentler valleys to the high plains of the east, and on to the rugged Berwickshire coastline with its secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages.

The beautiful countryside is a paradise for those lovers of outdoor activities and sports, especially mountain biking (there’s a superb mountain bike centre on the outskirts of Peebles), walking, fishing and golfing. A walk, taking in the three peaks of the Eilden Hills, is highly recommended. Scottish Border towns play host to the many and varied independent retail outlets showcasing the best of Scottish Borders textiles, giftware and produce.
