Why not rent a holiday cottage in the Scottish Borders and have a relaxed base to explore this magical land? As the Borders cover such a vast area of Scotland, the scenery varies from coast to coast, with the high hills of Berwickshire, the rich plains to the east and rolling moorland to the west. The area is perfect for long walks over the hills enjoying the stunning views and the changing colour of the heather throughout the seasons. Book a coastal cottage near the pretty little fishing town of Eymouth and enjoy exhilarating walks along the Berwickshire Coastal path from Berwick to St Abbs where the dramatic and rugged coastland at St Abb's Head should prove an unmissable experience. History lovers will enjoy a treasure trove of historic houses and castles open to the public including the Mary Queen of Scots Visitor Centre in Jedburgh and the Coldstream Museum.
