The town of Peebles is 22 miles south of Edinburgh in the Scottish Borders. Here, you can enjoy long walks along the River Tweed, or visit ancient monuments and sites like the Mercat Cross and the Cross Kirk. Go fishing in the river, hiking or mountain biking in the Glentress Forest, or visit the town’s art galleries and craft studios. The beautiful Dawyck Botanic Garden is also close by, where you can enjoy woodland walks and themed tree trails and discover the story of the Scottish plant explorers.
