We have gone to Scotland twice in the last few years and both times have made Peebles our home base as we have family who live there. In fact, we will be back there exactly a year from now as we attend our nieces‘s wedding! I’ve been thinking about our trip next year which is what brought me to the forums tonight - I was so excited to see Peebles mentioned in a thread title!
We stayed in two different flats that I found through things like Airbnb and both were lovely. We have enjoyed the restaurants and pubs, delicious chocolate from Cocoa Black, walks along the river, and day visits to Melrose Abbey, Roslyn Chapel. It’s a nice drive to Edinburgh. On Saturday morning we enjoyed the market. If you have specific questions I can ask my brother in law - he’s lived in the area his whole life :)
