Edinburgh Castle and The Scottish Borders

5 days - from only £499pp


Edinburgh Castle and The Scottish Borders

Built in 1536, the imposing Barony Castle Hotel is set in 25 acres of beautiful countryside and offers a warm Scottish welcome. Originally built for the Murrays of Blackbarony and steeped in history, one of the key highlights of the hotel is the ‘Great Polish Map of Scotland’ – a three-dimensional, outdoor concrete scale model of Scotland designed by Polish war veteran Jan Tomasik. From our base in the spectacular scenery of the Scottish Borders, we’ll visit historic Edinburgh and enjoy a tour of majestic Edinburgh Castle, explore the quaint town of Peebles, and take in the sights of Jedburgh. Ending the tour on a high, we discover the sumptuous interiors and beautiful gardens of Abbotsford House and Gardens.

    This morning we take a trip to nearby Peebles. This beautiful Border Town straddles the River Tweed and was made a Royal Burgh in 1152. Stroll along the timeless high street with its range of independent shops, and meander the alleyways and medieval closes which have barely changed over the passing centuries.

    Later, we return to the hotel where the remainder of the day is at leisure for you to relax.

  • Day 4: Abbotsford House and Gardens and Jedburgh

    Join us on our included excursion to Jedburgh – known for its associations with Mary Queen of Scots. Up to the 17th century, the location of the town put it at the forefront of many Border battles; today it is a charming place to visit where colourful, renovated buildings flank the Market Place.

    Our day continues as we visit Abbotsford House and Gardens. Abbotsford is the extraordinary home of Sir Walter Scott – the 'Great Scott' who popularised tartan, saved the Scottish banknote and rediscovered his country's Crown Jewels. We take a guided a tour here that will take us through the sumptuous interiors and into the beautiful gardens which form three 'outdoor rooms', before enjoying an included cream tea.
