Beyond The Borders

On this 11 day tour we’ll explore the unrivalled, relaxed beauty of the Borders. Traveling coast to coast through this lesser explored region of Scotland you’ll experience everything you’d expect from an adventure across this bountiful country.

Beginning in Stirling, follow in the footsteps of Scotland’s two great legendary warriors: William Wallace and Robert The Bruce and as we travel south explore the sights and lands that these two men fought for.

Leaving Stirling we’ll first head for Rosslyn Chapel where you can hear the tales of the Knights Templar before settling down in Peebles for a three night stay. From Peebles we’ll explore along the River Tweed and take in the Great Map of Scotland as well as the Great Tapestry of Scotland, learning about the historic industries of the borders: farming, mining and textiles.

Understand how the Borders inspired the author Sir Walter Scott to write a series of ballads about its beauty and witness it through his eyes: from his home in Abbotsford House and his favourite view in the country, Scotts View.

Leaving Peebles we’ll head west, crossing over Greymares Tail Waterfall and climbing up to Wanlockhead, Scotland’s Highest Village, before winding our way down to the coast and settling in Kidcudbright.

Kidcudbright, a vibrant coastal town, known locally as The Artists Town, shall be our base for the next four days. From here we’ll explore the homelands of Robert Burns, Scotland’s great National Poet as well as visiting the ancient Caerlaverock castle, besieged by the English king during the Scottish Wars of Independence in the 13th century.

We’ll travel right down the southern peninsula to the Isle of Whithorn, visiting Wigtown, Scotland’s Book Town on the way. In Whithorn you can gaze out to the Isle of Man and explore an old Scottish Roundhouse.

To end the adventure we’ll head back north towards Stirling, stopping at Dumfries House, a beloved home of none other than the King himself and wind past the lochs, forest and rolling hills which make the borders truly unique.

This whole tour will be peppered with the sounds and stories of Scotland. Experience music across the borders with a number of music sessions and concerts scheduled across the trip. Hear the songs and melodies inspired by the legends of this land.
