Watersports are well catered for at a variety of locations across the region.

The Scottish Borders has a superb coastline extending approximately 32 miles/ 50 km from Lamberton to Cockburnspath. The region also boasts over 2,000 miles of rivers and streams and inland waters including St Mary’s loch, which is the largest stretch of water in the South of Scotland.

So whether its river running, whitewater paddling, playboating, canoe slalom or polo, the Scottish Borders has many water courses to challenge you, including the internationally renowned River Tweed.

If surfing is more your thing, Coldingham Bay, which is within part of Scotland’s only Voluntary Marine Nature Reserve, has an east-north-east facing beach break which means it picks up most of the swells around the east coast of Scotland.
