Bursting at the seams with outdoor pursuits

The Scottish Borders covers approx 1800 square miles, from the rolling hills and moorlands in the the west to the valleys and agricultural plains of the east.

Full of picturesque villages and secluded coves, fishing, golf, cycling and riding are but a few of the many outdoor activities and pass-times on offer.

The Scottish Borders is also home to rugby and passion and rivalry inevitably emerge as the Rugby Sevens tournament gets under way through spring and summer.
