Peebles

A hidden treasure in the Scottish Borders, and a mecca for family activity and mountain biking holidays, Peebles is an outdoor activity dream south of Edinburgh. Go fishing along the salmon rich River Tweed and rip it up on some of Scotland's best mountain bike trails, situated just 2 miles east of Peebles in one of the 7 Stanes Scottish mountain biking forests - the vast Glentress Forest.

Enjoy first class golf in the Peebles area, go horse riding in local forests or head off for a hike in the surrounding Southern Uplands and Moorfoots. Beautiful riverside walks along the Tweed are direct from Peebles centre, and you're in one of Scotland's best salmon and trout fishing areas in this Scottish Borders town.

Peebles town centre is a delightful mix of independent shops, stylish cafes and traditional inns. A Royal Burgh since 1152, Peebles has a heritage town trail taking in some of its market town jewels from the Mercat Cross to 17th Century Cross Keys Hotel. The central Eastgate Theatre & Arts Centre offers a packed programme of dance, comedy, literary events and music.

Take your pick of cosy bistro restaurants, wine bars, chic cafes and Indian restaurants lining Peebles' main high street. The town also offers a fantastic range of accommodation from luxurious country house hotels and spectacularly situated forest spa hotels to budget holiday parks, caravan and campsites and country inn B&Bs.
