About Berwickshire


The small towns and villages of Berwickshire offer holidays with all you could wish for, from the picturesque harbour villages of the Berwickshire coast on the East to the towns and villages inland surrounded by acres of undulating hills with imposing mansions, beautiful gardens and historic landmarks. The whole of Berwickshire offers, for the more active, recreational pursuits such as horseriding, golfing, cycling, fishing, walking, birdwatching, diving, surfing and canoeing.

Below is just an introduction to some parts of Berwickshire, for more information click on the links to the individual towns/villages on the right.

The museum at Coldstream features the history of the Coldstream Guards. Nearby at the Hirsel you can enjoy lakeside and woodland walks, longer over lunch at lakeside picnic tables and buy high quality craft products direct from the makers.

At Duns Castle there is an outstanding 190 acre Wildlife Nature Reserve and the nearby town of Duns has a Jim Clark museum devoted to the late world champion racing driver.

At Eyemouth the colourful local fishing fleet carries on a traditional industry that has lasted for more than 700 years. The local museum is the home of the magnificent Eyemouth tapestry commemorating the terrible loss of life in the Eyemouth fishing disaster of 1881.
