Self Catering in Scottish Borders

While it may just be a short hop from England, the Borders has inspired some of our most quintessentially Scottish poetry and prose. See what inspired Sir Walter Scott for yourself by visiting his home at Abbotsford or one of his favourite spots at ‘Scott's View’ where you can fully enjoy the fantastic Tweed Valley landscape.

Wildlife watchers and fishing enthusiasts alike will also likely fall for the allure of the River Tweed while the Scottish Borders Textile Trail is a tailor made way to travel through a region well known for its textile industry from the tweed of Peebles to tartan in Selkirk and cashmere in Hawick.

For the more energetic, the fifty-five mile long Four Abbeys Cycle Route will take you round the abbeys at Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh as well as some other points of interest including Jedburgh Castle and Jail, Smailholm Tower and Floors Castle.

While there are plenty of towns and villages to explore, each with their own unique appeal, the Borders also make an excellent base to visit Edinburgh. The Borders Railway will make it even easier to explore Scotland's capital from your Borders holiday cottage.

So take the Southern Upland way to begin your holiday story…
