Scottish Borders



The southern reaches of Scotland inspired writers such as Sir Walter Scott and John Buchan with their gently rolling landscape and fascinating history, evident in the great houses and gardens which are found throughout. Visit the charming town of Melrose with its ruined 12th century Abbey, explore the vast estate and gardens at the magnificent Floors Castle, discover Sir Walter Scott’s former home at Abbotsford (pictured above) on the River Tweed, and spend the night in one of the region’s most historic castles, Thirlestane, home of the Maitland family for centuries.
