This is quite a long post (because there are so many things to do in the Scottish Borders) so grab a cuppa and a handful of your favourite biscuits (I’m a chocolate hobnob girl myself) and read on.

Hubbie and I love crumbling old ruins, and were in seventh heaven clambering around all the historic sites up here.

There are 4 Borders Abbeys, all quite close together and easily seen in a day or two combined with other attractions.

It’s a great place for a picnic on a sunny day, which I’m assured does sometimes occur in Scotland!

Top Tip: just before you get to Scotts View there’s a tiny car park and a short walk which leads to an enormous William Wallace Monument. Visiting the Scottish Borders isn’t just about heritage and good views.

Paradise for us doesn’t mean palm trees and sandy swathes.

A bit of moss-covered ancient rock and tall towers with far-reaching views will do us just fine.

I just knew I’d be useless whilst Hubbie would be flinging things left, right and centre, and hitting the target every time. Yet instead of feeling stupid, I absolutely loved it and hadn’t had that much fun in ages.
