Holiday cottages in the Scottish borders

Spanning 1800 square miles, the Scottish borders encompass Edinburgh and The Lothians in the north, Dumfries and Galloway in the West and Northumberland in the South. From its picturesque Berwickshire coastline in the East to rolling hills and open countryside, it is no surprise that this land inspired the works of Sir Walter Scott. It has not one, but two 7stanes mountain biking centres, plus off-road quad biking, archery, surfing, treetop adventures, walking opportunities, fishing on the River Tweed and Teviot, and 24 quality golf courses to choose from. And once you have tired yourselves out with all the action and adventure you can visit one of the historic market towns of Peebles, Jedburgh or Melrose. If that wasn't enough to keep you busy we have more suggestions of things to see and do below. So what are waiting for? Our holiday cottages in the Scottish Borders deliver a holiday like no other.
