Overview

Nestled within the Moorfoot, Lammermuir and Cheviot hills, the Border country follows the path of the mighty River Tweed. Hailed as one of the world's best salmon fishing rivers, the Tweed extends to a spectacular stretch of coastline in the east and forms a natural border with England.

From rolling hills and moorland to lush woods and valleys the area has some outstanding scenery and supports a wide variety of wildlife. Be on the lookout for red squirrels, otters, roe deer and all kinds of birds including the osprey. Walk through ancient woodlands, upland and lowland pastures and internationally important moorland that are home to many rare species.

The Borders really does have an outstanding collection of wildlife habitats and landscapes so come and enjoy the seasonal splendour of spring flowers, summer's purple heather blooms, autumn's turning leaves and winter's frosted vistas in the naturally beautiful Scottish Borders.
