The Scottish Borders covers over eighteen hundred square miles of softly rolling hills, moors, valleys and rich agricultural land.

For the car-borne tourist and cyclists there are lovely and lively towns and villages to discover, castles, abbeys, stately homes, mills and museums to explore, local festivals to enjoy, and a wealth of activities in which to take part.

Innerleithen – or Inverleithen as it was originally named – first appeared in written records as long ago as 1159 and derived its named from the confluence of the Rivers Leithen and Tweed. It was historically known for the medicinal properties of its saline springs as well as being a centre for worldwide cashmere production.

Today, Innerleithen and the Borders attract people who are interested in a variety of different sporting activities as well as enjoying the beautiful scenery on offer.

Explore the Scottish Borders

The village of Innerleithen lies right in the heart of the Tweed Valley and within close proximity you can find attractions such as Traquair House, Scotland’s oldest inhabited house and home of the Stuart Kings, Robert Smail’s Printing Works, and St Ronan’s Well, a famous spa of bygone times.
The historic town of Peebles, just six miles to the north, makes for an interesting day out. The town has a delightful high street with a wealth of small, privately owned shops, the Tweeddale Museum, the John Buchan Museum and the Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre with its year round theatre, music and art exhibitions.

Nearby are two wonderful gardens at Dawyck and Kailzie (15 acres of garden paths, and with the added attractions of fly-fishing, restaurant, children’s play area and an Osprey Watch between April and August).

A few miles to the south-east of Innerleithen lies the delightful village of Melrose, with its 12th century abbey highlighted against the backdrop of the Eildon Hills. The Abbey is the burial place of a casket said to contain the heart of Robert the Bruce. Three miles west of Melrose lies Abbotsford, where Sir Walter Scott lived for 20 years, open to visitors during the season. Other excellent places to visit are Floors Castle, Rosslyn Chapel (DaVinci Code fame), Thirlestane Castle, Smailholm Tower, Bowhill House and Manderstone House.

And of course, Edinburgh, with its world famous Princes Street, Royal Mile, Castle, Holyrood Palace, museums, shops and many other delights is only 28 miles north of Innerleithen. There is a regular bus service a few minutes’ walk from Glede Knowe which can take you into the centre of Edinburgh within the hour or to Galashiels where you can catch the Borders railway directly into the heart of the Scottish capital.
