    The gateway to some of the most spectacular countryside in Britain, surrounded by the romantic landscape of the Borders, as well as great historic houses and majestic ruined castles, Edinburgh is one of the most elegant cities in Europe. The capital of an independent Scotland for more than two hundred and fifty years, the city is dominated by the spectacular fortress of Edinburgh Castle, situated high on the peak of the once-volcanic Castle Rock.

    The Borders area stretches along the entire border region of southern Scotland and neighbouring areas of northern England, to include Dumfriesshire and Kirkcudbrightshire, as well as Northumberland, Cumberland and Westmorland.

    Things to do in Edinburgh and the Borders
    In addition to walking and wildlife pursuits, the Borders area is particularly rich in historic buildings – from the more humble of local town and village halls to the most regal and majestic of royal palaces and great houses.

    Top Destinations
    Linlithgow – An historic Royal Burgh in the central Scottish lowlands, Linlithgow was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots; the magnificent ruins of the Royal palace are situated on the banks of a loch, and the palace and grounds are open to the public.

    Jedburgh – The ruined 12th century Augustinian Jedburgh Abbey still attracts visitors to this, the largest town between Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne. The town lies on the Jed Water, a tributary of the River Teviot, and is just ten miles within the Scottish border.

    Kelso – Situated at the confluence of the River Tweed and the River Teviot, with cobbled streets and elegant Georgian buildings, Kelso is also the site of the ruined 12th century Kelso Abbey and of Floors Castle, the home of the Dukes of Roxburghe.

    Aberlady – A coastal village, Aberlady is now surrounded by several well-known golf courses. An important harbour in the Middle Ages, from the 7th century the village had strong links with the monasteries at Iona and Lindisfarne, with an important role facilitating pilgrim traffic between the two holy sites. Since 1952, Aberlady Bay has been recognised as a centre for nature and conservation, and nearby Waterston House is the HQ of the Scottish Ornithologists’ Club (SOC).

    South Queensferry – Ten miles from the centre of Edinburgh, on the shore of the Firth of Forth, between the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge, the area of South Queensferry takes its name from St Margaret of Scotland, who is thought to have established a ferry for pilgrims who were on their way north to St Andrews.

    Berwick-upon-Tweed – The northern most town in England, with a strategic border position on the east coast and the mouth of the River Tweed, Berwick changed hands between Scotland and England for the final time in 1482. Given its former military significance, it is unsurprising that Berwick Barracks and the ramparts of the town are now key local landmarks.

    Selkirk – This historic town lies on the banks of Ettrick Water, a tributary of the River Tweed. Site of the first Border Abbey, Selkirk was once famous for its woollen industry; now its primary fame is perhaps from its links with bannocks – a particular variety of dry fruit cake.
