The Scottish Borders is an area of scenic beauty, with miles of open moorland, green valleys and dozens of good-sized market towns, many built around an abbey, with random castles and more stately homes per square mile than any other part of Britain.

Sunday

We journey north to the Scottish Borders, arriving at the Peebles Hydro for our 4-night stay.

Monday

Enjoy a sightseeing drive around the beautiful Borders Region, taking in Melrose with chance to visit the Abbey, probably the most famous ruin in Scotland. We continue to Kelso with its picturesque square on our way to Floors Castle, home to the Duke of Roxburgh. Floors is Scotland's largest inhabited castle full of works of art and fine antiques

Tuesday

Today we start with a train journey on Scotland's newest railway, running from Tweedbank near Galashiels to Edinburgh. Newly opened in 2015 the line follows the route of the lamented Waverley Route from Carlisle. We spend the day in the City of Edinburgh, with an opportunity to discover the host of attractions or the shops on Princess Street. The city is dominated by the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, an ancient fortress built on a volcanic crag. Other attractions include the gardens on Princes Street, the Old Town, The Royal Mile leading to Holyrood House and much more. Late afternoon we catch the return train to Tweedbank and join the coach for the hotel.

Wednesday

We have a short ride into Peebles for a morning free to explore the town and obtain lunch. This afternoon we pay a visit to nearby Traquair House. Dating back to 1107 and Scotland's oldest inhabited house, Traquair was originally a hunting lodge for Scottish Kings and Queens, but today the beautiful house provides a magical and romantic setting with extensive grounds, maze, craft workshops and the famous Traquair House Brewery.

Thursday

After breakfast we leave and head for home.
