The Scottish Borders has more than its share of interesting places to visit. When you arrive here you will be impressed by the beauty and peacefulness of it all. The River Tweed runs through this beautiful land of rolling hills and the occasional dormant volcanos. Popular with walkers the volcanos include Eildon Hills at Melrose and the Black Hill near Earlston. For the artist with canvas and paint there are endless subjects to capture. Trout and salmon fishing is a major attraction as the River Tweed and its tributaries are excellent for both.

Monks played a major part in the goings on of border folk. They built abbeys to live and work in throughout the borders and there are some fine ruins to see to this day. Roman artefacts and Forts are still being discovered with Trimontium Fort near Newstead being the source of many discoveries. There is a museum at Melrose Abbey where you can see many of the Roman artefacts found.
