Enjoy a tour on the Scottish Borders

The Highlands conjure a sense of awe and wonder which capture the imagination of many travellers to Scotland. Ironically, the man who more than any other shared the icon of the kilted adonis with the world came not from a great Highland clan, but from one of the greatest of Lowland families, Sir Walter Scott.

The story of the Highlands seems romantic, but in truth, the most turbulent stories in Scotland’s long history were played out in the disputed lands where Scotland and England meet — in the Borders.

Today’s tour is relaxed but crams in a huge amount, and the views are spectacular. We begin with a sedate run out to Peebles, a beautiful town with some great shops perfect for picking up one or two souvenirs away from the worst of Edinburgh’s tacky bustle.

Tour Highlights:

  • Picture-perfect Peebles
  • Home of the Wizard – Abbotsford
  • Romantic Melrose Abbey
  • Scott’s View and Wallace Monument
  • Glenkinchie Distillery

What is Included:

  • Eight-hour tour (start at 9 h)
  • Pick-up (Edinburgh/Glasgow Airport)
  • Drop-off (Edinburgh/Glasgow Airport)
  • Comfortable car
  • Private guide

For tours ending after 18 h, we add a one-off evening supplement of £50.
