The Borders is perfectly positioned as the easiest destination in Scotland to reach. Edinburgh and the Lothians lie to the North, Dumfries and Galloway to the west, and Northumberland in northern England to the south.
As you explore the Borders let the scenery make its impression on you. From rolling hills and open countryside in the west to the gentle valleys and picturesque Berwickshire coastline in the east. The region is defined as much by the landscape as it is by its abbeys, homes and castles, and the unique *Common Ridings. *Common Ridings is one of the oldest equestrian summer festivals in the world. They're an unforgettable spectacle of horsemanship, pageantry and community spirit.
In the Borders there are plenty of thrills for those who dare; adrenaline-pumping mountain biking, off-road quad biking, archery, surfing and treetop adventures. Not to mention of the very best cycling and walking opportunities that can be found in Scotland. There are of course also plenty of golf courses to practice your swing at as well as many angling opportunities on the rivers. Whatever you choose to do, you'll find that the Scottish Borders really is a wonderful place to unwind and get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday city life.
Visit one of the many sites that are well worth a visit during your glamping holiday. Head out to admire the architecture of Melrose Abbey, Abbotsford House, and Floors Castle. Take in the breath-taking mountainous views with its stunning lakes at St Mary's Loch. Plan a day to the coastal haven for birdwatchers, nature lovers and walkers that is St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve. Spot thousands of seabirds and be awed by the dramatic cliffs overlooking crystal-clear waters.
There's even more to be discovered on your Borders glamping holiday. The delightful village of Ancrum is just a short trip from the Feather Down base, Chesters. Indulge in a delicious meal at the Cross Keys pub. This is where Gordon Ramsay trained chefs that serves up culinary delights made with fresh local produce. Then, take a stroll over the village green before heading back to your cosy tent at sunset. Treat yourself to an amazing family holiday in the Scottish Borders, and embrace the history and tradition of this unique location.
