News ans Events in the Scottish Borders

Small towns like Kelso and Peebles, unspoiled in their rural setting, unveil to the visitor the timeless appeal of Scotland – breathing space, charming locations and friendly people, spirited and generous.

All this is evident at the colourful festivals of the Border Ridings hosted in many towns. Another special characteristic is the choice of grand homes and castles to visit.

Just north of the Border, Paxton House is a handsome mansion with a picture gallery which is part of the National Galleries of Scotland.

Floors Castle, on the edge of Kelso, is said to be the largest inhabited home in Scotland. Traquair House near Innerleithen is the oldest continually inhabited house in Scotland.

Many of these properties have fine gardens, another Scottish Borders characteristic. Other gardens to visit include Dawyck, west of Peebles, an outstation of Edinburgh's Royal Botanical Gardens - and Priorwood, beside Melrose Abbey.
