Golfers will enjoy the prestigious Roxburghe course and Springwood Park showground host’s international horse riding and other events throughout the year. The salmon and trout rich River Tweed will delight those who enjoy fishing and Floors Castle (which is softly illuminated at night and was recently voted number one in the top five attractions in the Borders) offers tours of the house and gardens. The Border town of Jedburgh, just 9 miles to the west, is steeped in history and renowned for its 12th century red stone Abbey, Castle Jail and Museum and Mary Queen of Scots House.
