Scottish Borders Cottages
Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in the Scottish Borders.
Immerse yourself in rural Scotland and try a Scottish Borders cottage holiday.
Sweeping moors, gentle hills, peaceful valleys and extensive plains; not to mention the rugged Berwickshire coastline - the contrasting landscapes of the Scottish Borders happily sit side by side. And as you might expect, this is a fantastic place for enjoying the 'Great Outdoors'.
For walkers, over 1500 miles of paths and trails thread through the countryside. Areas worth a mention include in and around the River Tweed, Liddesdale, Teviotdale and the hills of Moorfoot and Lammermuir - the latter an incredible sight come autumn when displays of heather flush deep purple.
Cycling, too, is a great way to explore the Borders, with lots of suitable off-road trails for beginners and adrenalin-pumping downhill tracks for the avid mountain biker.
Like horses? Whether it's active participation or the fun of spectating, this is a great equestrian centre. Horse riding highlights include the 57-mile Buccleuch Country Ride, while point-to-point, national hunt and horse trials all appear on the calendar. Another spectator sport not-to-be-missed is rugby and there's a team in every main town.
More mellow pursuits include freshwater and sea fishing, as well as golf. Top class 18-hole courses include Eyemouth whose fairways unfurl to the sea and Cardrona, affectionately known as 'Gleneagles of the south'.
Those keen to delve into the mysterious past will find a dramatic and often turbulent history has left a trail of castles, abbeys, mansions and ruins scattered across the region.
Wherever your interests lie, a Scottish Borders cottage holiday will more than meet your expectations.
