Days out in the Scottish Borders

  

The Scottish Borders stretch along the English Border, encompassing parts of the Cheviot Hills, ranging from rolling hills and rugged countryside to sandy beaches and rocky cliffs.  The majestic River Tweed flows through the south, forming the border in the east before flowing into the Sea. The Borders have a turbulent history and have been involved in many battles with English armies. As a result many former Peel Towers and Abbeys are now ruinous, but provide a fascinating history of the region.

Below are the places that we have visited. I have also included some of our own photographs. You can view All Places or any of the individual places listed below.  have also added some links to other websites. I hope you enjoy your trips.  If you are interested in walking and cycling please visit the  Short Walks in the Scottish Borders and Cycling in the Borders pages.
