Explore Peebles and the Scottish Borders
The market town of Peebles has plenty to offer. It’s the perfect base for exploring the Scottish Borders or further afield; a quick 45 minute drive from Edinburgh, just over an hour from Glasgow, and two from Newcastle. Whether you’re looking to mountain bike on some of Scotland’s best trails at Glentress, roam the bustling streets of our capital, or simply relax and enjoy our town and local area, we’ve got it covered.
The Tweed Valley is a haven for adventure. If you’d like to swing through the trees, Go Ape is the place, or if you’d prefer to keep your feet firmly on terra-firma, and walking is your thing, then the John Buchan Way is the place to start.
Discover an area rich in history, with many castles, country houses and gardens for you to visit. Take a peek inside Scotland’s oldest inhabited home, Traquair House, and sample some Traquair beer at the Brew Shop.
With England less than a two hour drive away, there’s plenty to discover across the border. Why not visit the famous wedding town of Gretna Green or Hadrian’s Wall for starters?
