So, I’m planning to spend some time in the Borders after my tour ends (end of May), and while it’s hardly written in stone, I was wondering if you might comment/make suggestions. Thanks in advance!
*I’d be based in Melrose
1 day : Explore Melrose/Abbey
1 day: Kelso/Mellerstain House (maybe Coldstream)
1 day: Peebles/Traquair House
1 day: Abbotsford/Dryburgh Abbey/Scott’s View
*I’d have part of the arrival day (from Edinburgh) in Melrose, so I could explore the town that day and then combine the Abbey in another day with something else..
St. Abb’s Head also appeals to me because I love being by the water and I love wildlife...I’m just not sure if it’s feasible by public transportation.
I’d also like to do some horseback riding, so I don’t know how that would affect this itinerary.
*No, I won’t have a car; I don’t drive that much where I live and I definitely do not feel comfortable driving on the “wrong” side of the road. I’m ok taking public transportation or taxis
Thank you !
