Scottish Borders

Explore, plan and book with Wild Scotland


The Scottish Borders present a world of contrasts. The dramatic coast is lined with jagged cliffs and humble fishing villages.


You can marvel at the seabirds that reside at St Abb's Head, home to thousands of kittiwakes, fulmars, guillemots, puffins and razorbills or immerse yourself in the fascinating geology at Siccar Point.

Further inland you'll find rolling hills and farmland, the rural scenery dotted with grand historic houses and abbeys like Abbotsford, Melrose Abbey and Floors Castle. This lush area is influenced by one of the world’s foremost rivers for wild salmon, the River Tweed, with excellent opportunities to spot water birds, such as dippers and kingfishers.

As well as being a haven for wildlife, the Scottish Borders offer outdoor lovers a plethora of active options. Looking for a great viewpoint? You could head up the Cheviots, a range of upland hills straddling to Algo-Scottish Borders or admire the Eidon Hills from Scott's View Point. Chasing an adrenaline rush? There are various excellent downhill and cross country biking trails in Tweed Valley Forest Park, including Innerleithen and Glentress. Alternatively, the quiet country roads are perfect for road cycling, with plenty of lovely cafes to visit along the way.
