Scotland’s most productive salmon and sea trout river system, an amazing variety of loch and river fishing for trout, plentiful coarse fishing and the challenge of bass and mullet in salt water. An angler’s menu does not come much better than this!
Classic riding country with miles of hill tracks and forest trails and a wide choice of mounts: Irish Draft horses; Icelandic horses; and Exmoor ponies. Trail riding is a speciality here.
Lothians and Borders offer a huge choice for the walker - coastal walking, discovering the Pentlands, riverside walking, or exploring the Southern Upland Way, the Sir Walter Scott Way and other official long-distance paths.
While the off-road choice for mountain bikers is justly famous at locations like Glentress, there are plenty of other forest tracks and also waymarked routes for cyclists, plus a good network of quiet rural roads in the Lothians and Borders.
Unusually clarity, plus spectacular underwater scenery, make the waters around St Abb's Head especially attractive for divers. The excellent sites starting just beyond the harbour have helped the area become the most popular shore diving site in Britain.
