There are golf courses suited to every style and level, secluded sandy beaches within 30 minutes drive, horse-riding, quad-biking and much more. Guests may also wish to visit local landmarks such as Abbotsford House (the home of Sir Walter Scott) and other stately homes such as Manderston House and Floors Castle, explore neighbouring market towns of Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh or Hawick (famous for Cashmere) or arrange a tour of Glenkinchie Distillery or Rosslyn Chapel (made famous in Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code). There are always many local cultural events taking place, including Reivers Week in July, The Duns Show in early August and the Borders Heritage Festival in September. With all of this and Edinburgh's famous International Festivals and Hogmanay celebrations, guests are spoiled for choice.
