Peebles, Broughton and Innerleithen

Peebles, Broughton and Innerleithen

'Peebles for Pleasure' is the slogan, and this attractive small town, beautifully set on the majestic River Tweed, has long been a magnet for visitors. So easy to reach from Edinburgh, in the nineteenth century the town became a centre for hydropathic treatments, and the giant Peebles Hydro remains to this day. The town is packed with independent shops and cafes, and in recent years has become a busy centre for mountain bikers through the nearby trails at Glentress.

Peebles is at the heart of Upper Tweedale, an idyllic landscape of heather moors and rolling green hills - with some of the best hillwalking in the Border country - all sweeping down to fertile pastures around one of Scotland's most celebrated salmon rivers.
