The pretty town of Coldstream sits on the northern bank of the river Tweed and is famous as the home of the Coldstream Guards. As a former rival to Gretna Green, this charming little town performed its fair share of illicit marriages. With a museum dedicated to its famous guards, a wide variety of shops and facilities for horse riding, golfing and fishing nearby, this historic settlement has something for everyone to do. The picturesque estate of The Hirsel is set to the west of the town and was once home to former Prime Minister, Alec Douglas. The estate is now a great spot for bird watching and many species choose to nest there. The Scottish borders and the rest of Northumberland are all within easy driving distance, making this a great location for people looking to explore the wider area.
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain’s best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
