Make a holiday rental property or holiday cottage in the Scottish Borders your home away from home

The Scottish Borders reach along the border with England from the Berwickshire Coast on the eastern extremity until reaching Dumfries and Galloway to the west. The moorland countryside is absolutely stunning, studded with charming villages, beautiful stately homes and dramatic castles, guides for which are available from any Scottish Borders tourist information centre.

Things to do on holiday in the Scottish Borders

There is a huge amount of fun to be had from a Scottish Borders holiday cottage. Whether you are taking a long holiday or a short break to the Scottish Borders for a family holiday or romantic getaway, you will never be short of top class entertainment. There are a large number of adventure activities to enjoy, including windsurfing, canyoning, zorbing, off road driving and sky diving in the Scottish Borders. The Scottish Borders Tourist Information offices have information on all the sports centres and adventure activity locations in the area.

The Southern Upland Way extends through the rolling hills, deep river valleys and mature forests of the Scottish Borders, giving walkers and cyclists a chance to get out into the crisp, clean air of the Scottish countryside from their self catering Scottish Borders property, and enjoy the country at its best. There is a real sense of freedom in the Borders countryside, and you can get out into the hills for anything from an hour to a succession of days from your Scottish Borders accommodation.

The Scottish Borders are also extremely well known for their salmon, trout and sea fishing. The River Tweed is a hugely famous salmon fishing river, and fishermen flock from across Europe to self catering Scottish Borders holiday cottages on the Tweed every year, hoping to catch their record fish, and just soak in the wonderfully peaceful atmosphere and experience the soft, changing lights of the Scottish evening.

Short breaks to Scottish Borders accommodation are a great excuse for a golfing break. Weekends playing golf on any one of the excellent, scenic and windswept courses of the Scottish Borders are great fun and extremely rewarding.

Places to visit on holiday in the Scottish Borders

The Lindisfarne Priory is the most important and holiest of Anglo-Saxon historical monuments in the UK. Access is limited by the tides, and care must be taken if you are taking the crossing from Scottish Borders accommodation. There are also two magnificent, long walks which originate from the old priory.

Travel to the Scottish Borders

Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is located just outside the Scottish Borders, bringing people to Scottish Borders holiday cottages from all across the world. However, from anywhere in the UK, driving or catching a train is easy. The driving in the Scottish Borders is surprisingly relaxing, with traffic-free roads cutting through dramatic scenery.

It was all very clean and well-maintained. Rob was very helpful and pointed out some good walks and pubs nearby. There were some great sights and things to do nearby, and it was in a really nice location. We had a wonderful time.

The cottage is quiet, well away from a main road and the adjoining field was perfect for walking our dog. It is tastefully and comfortably furnished and it provided everything we might need. The kitchen has all the appliances including a dishwasher. and washing machine. I have to say we didn't use most of them because tempting restaurants are just five minutes away but for a longer stay we would be well catered for in the cottage. Melrose is minutes from the A68 so we were easily able to reach places of interest. For us it was a perfect place to chill out and recharge our batteries. The owner showed us the smaller, one-bedroom cottage which was equally well appointed and charming. It would be a satisfactory second choice if Saddlery Cottage wasn't available. Highly recommended.
