Duns

Situated in the Scottish Borders, the market town of Duns has a history that stretches back over 1000 years and today offers a warm and friendly welcome to all visitors.

This rural town has a large market square and a centuries old castle as well as historic houses of much grandeur. Duns Castle dates back to the early 14th century, but most of which stands today was built at the beginning of the 1800s. In addition to the castle itself, visitors can enjoy the stunning parkland that surrounds it. Just outside the town sits the truly grand Manderston House, which contains the only silver staircase in the world and a vast collection of Huntley and Palmers biscuit tins!

One of the greatest motor racing drivers in history, Jim Clark, was raised near the town and today, visitors can look back on his life and career at the museum dedicated to him, the Jim Clark Room. This fascinating little museum is open between March and October and is crammed full of memorabilia and trophies from Clark’s career.

As a comfortable base for enjoying the historic county of Berwickshire, Duns is ideal and you will find plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs in the town. The dramatic Borders coastline lies to the east and provides lovely days out.
