About the "BEST OF THE BORDERS"
The Borders of Scotland is a region for centuries in dispute, fought for by Celts, Romans, Vikings, Anglo Saxons, Normans, English and Scots. Each area in our Accommodation Scottish Borders guide will testify to the history and culture that has made each area a special place on its own
Today, the Scottish Borders is a peaceful Scottish region. Here is a pleasant landscape dotted with small villages and larger market towns. Agriculture is the way of life. The many walking paths offer tranquility. The many great abbeys and castles are curiosities standing as mute witnesses to a much less peaceful history.
The Accommodations of Scottish Borders lie mid-way between Scotlands capital of Edinburgh and Newcastle, the industrial capital of the north of England. Both cities were rich prizes in ancient wars of conquest and independence.
Of course there are castles to explore, for the Borders has them in abundance. There is also wonderful walking along short paths or long-distance routes. The Borders is a great place to shop for woolens, and to discover real ales in friendly pubs. Both Edinburgh and Glasgow are easy day trips as are the East and West Coasts. Golfers of all levels will be tempted by the wide variety of courses within reach, including some of the greatest Scottish links on both coasts. And anglers will want to cast a line in the region's many superb streams full of fish.
