During your stay in the Scottish Borders why not check out the wide range of heritage and outdoor events that are taking place? Enjoy a ghost tour, browse some delicious local food and drink at a farmers’ market or head to a vintage rally.

The Scottish Borders is known as the traditional heartland of rugby in Scotland. In April, make your way to historic Melrose to watch one of Scotland's premier sporting events, the Melrose Sevens. The very first Rugby Sevens tournament was held here in 1883 in the Greenyards, Melrose's rugby ground, and today this intense competition still attracts teams and spectators from around the world.

At Tweedlove you can take advantage of free guided rides along quiet country roads and discover amazing scenery and routes favoured by friendly locals at informal ride outs.

Discover the charming history of the Scottish Borders by experiencing one of the many Return to the Ridings events which take place in each town throughout the summer. From Selkirk to Hawick, these magnificent ride outs involve hundreds of horses, traditional sports and plenty of community spirit.

In September you can explore over 1,800 exhibitors alongside a fantastic pipe band performance at the Selkirk Vintage Car Rally.

Don't miss the Tweed Valley Forest Festival in October, with highlights including the Scottish Conker Championships and the wood market.
