Beautiful Countryside to Explore
The county is one of the most delightful in the Scottish Borders. It is scenically beautiful without being daunting, perfect for relaxing and recharging the batteries. It is also blessed with accessibility and an excellent infrastructure, something that can be lacking in wilder, more remote spots.
There is plenty to see and plenty to do at whatever pace you want to do it. A good network of quiet byways and uncrowded major roads, and, from 2015, the newly restored Waverley Line to Edinburgh, mean that it is going to be even easier to reach and explore.
The Tweed and Teviot rivers are famous for their fishing and the area offers great walking, being crossed by both the Southern Upland and St Cuthbert's Ways, as well as the end of the Pennine Way at Yetholm. Cycling, riding and canoeing are also readily available.
The Border towns of Jedburgh, Kelso and Melrose, are picturesque, peaceful places which are full of interest. In common with the other Border towns they all stage their colourful festivals in the summer. Jedburgh, in addition to its abbey, has its castle and jail (said to be haunted) and Mary Queen of Scots' House. Kelso, with its attractive cobbled square, is well provisioned with entertainments, with a swimming pool, ice rink and race course. Melrose, nestled beneath the Eildon Hills, has a claim to fame as it is the birthplace of the rugby sevens game, with the annual Melrose Sevens in mid-April bringing teams from all over the world.

We loved how peaceful the surroundings are, with a wonderful enclosed garden for our dog, yet close enough to good supermarkets in Stirling and Perth. We enjoyed many fabulous walks, watching red kites and deer. Already planning our next trip!|
