To celebrate all the Scottish Borders has to offer in the way of history, stories and traditions we have a number of interesting Musuems. The Borders is also home to a thriving modern day cultural scence and again a number of great galleries and spaces show case all the talent and creativity the Borders has to offer.
Some of our favourites are:
The updated ( 2021) Trimontium Museum in Melrose, which celebrates the historical Roman settlement site of Newstead located just outside Melrose.
The Great Tapestry of Scotland, in it’s new purpose building in Galashiels.
The Border Textile Towerhouse show casing the history of one of the most important industries for the Scottish Borders, textiles and knitwear
Airhouses is more than an award-winning holiday escape — it’s an experience you will never forget. Explore woodland walks, hiking trails and the peaceful village of Oxton (plus Edinburgh is less than an hour away). And don’t forget to say hello to our friendly animal family of alpacas, goats, donkeys, pigs, Shetland ponies and more.
