Scottish Borders Tours

The Beautiful Borders


Once upon a time, the Scottish Borders were troubled by raids, castle sieges, and military battles. But now, there’s not even a single checkpoint or guard. It’s a peaceful and beautiful region where grand buildings delicately compliment rolling green valleys.

On our tours of the Scottish Borders, you venture to the ancient sites of Hadrian’s Wall and Alnwick Castle and travel through the graceful towns and hills.

Explore one of the most historically important parts of Britain and discover the beautiful borders on our small group tours.

Why you'll love the Borders


Rosslyn Chapel Carvings

Intriguing mysteries

Rosslyn Chapel is associated with as many mysteries as it has stone carvings. From the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail to UFO sightings and portals to other dimensions, this site certainly isn’t lacking in thrilling tales.

Cumbria

Unique landscapes

The gently undulating countryside of the Scottish Borders is mesmerising. You’ll see crumbling ancient structures nestled in verdant farmland and gaze at surprisingly hypnotising wind farms as they rotate in unison.


Alnwick Castle

Filming locations

The DaVinci Code, Harry Potter and Downton Abbey are just a few of the productions filmed around the Scottish Borders. Immerse yourself in the fictional worlds you know and love at these enchanting castles, chapels and gardens.

Hadrian's Wall

Colourful history

Staring out at the peaceful landscape of the Borders, it’s hard to believe it was once ransacked and pillaged for centuries. Both the might of the Romans and the fearmongering of the Border Reivers ruled this area for a time.
