See and Do

Out & About in The Scottish Borders

Staying at Hendersyde – there’s so much to see, do, and discover on both sides of the border – Edinburgh is in easy reach too!

I have tried to gather information, under separate headings, to help you find some of the best of The Borders.

Hendersyde, the farm, is obviously on the doorstep!

A step away, Kelso is a five minute drive, or walking distance, along the farm lane toward Kelso Race Course.

There’s lots of choice for Eating Out and sampling high quality local produce.

With wonderful walks and wildlife to watch, on the rolling hills, dramatic sandstone cliffs and islands off the Northumberland coast – boots and binoculars are a must!

Golfing – Cycling – Riding There’s so much choice, friendly courses in stunning settings. Signed cycle routes and white knuckle mountain bike runs. Rides weave through the beautiful landscape.

Fishing, the River Tweed is world famous for salmon fishing. There are also many other stretches of water and loch. Coaching can be arranged too!

Glorious gardens from small to spectacular, all with their own character and charm

The Borders’ rich history can be experienced in The Border Abbeys, castles, keeps & great houses, a fascinating insight into times gone by.

The pride and passion of the Borderers lives on in the spectacular horse-back Border Common Ridings, held in each Border town through the summer months.

Inspirational Artists, Craftsmen and Designers There are over 80 workshops and galleries in the Borders! Unique opportunities for retail therapy – take home more than just memories!

Researching your family history – or exercising your family – we have the resources and space.

The light, the landscape and the locals are the essence of The Scottish Borders. An area with a special feel, all of its own, which we love and hope you will too!
