It is the perfect place from which to enjoy the best of both worlds - the world heritage city of Edinburgh with it's many festivals and the proud border country with traditions that go back ages, quiet roads and some of the best scenery in Scotland.
Steeped in history
Neidpath Castle is set dramatically above the banks of the River Tweed, just outside Peebles. The walls of the castle are 12 feet thick and inside there is a well driven through the solid rock and a pit prison.
The countryside surrounding Peebles is of spectacular beauty with great rolling hills and wooded valleys and with its close proximity to England the area has been witness to many battles over the years between the English and Scots and Thirlestane Castle near Lauder and Traquair House at Innerleithen have connections with those times.
Thirlestane is one of Scotland's oldest and finest castles and contains a collection of historic toys and country life exhibitions. Traquair is said to be the oldest continuously inhabited house in Scotland and has secret stairs, cellars, exhibitions, events and the famous Traquair Ale, brewed on the premises. The Bear Gates, within the grounds, remain unopened since Bonny Prince Charlie passed through them for the last time.
Scottish Border country has also been immortalised in the works of Sir Walter Scott and you can visit the house he built and lived in for part of his life, at Abbotsford, near Galashiels. Scott completely rebuilt the castellated mansion and the house contains his collection of historic relics, including Rob Roy's gun and Bonnie Prince Charlie's drinking cup.
