Once you have found the ideal holiday accommodation, you can concentrate on the amazing things to do in the South East of Scotland. There’s a wealth of amazing days out you can enjoy, so we thought we’d run through just a few ideas for you.
1. Take a trip to the capital
Edinburgh truly is the city of fun. From the Fringe Festival every summer to attractions like Camera Obscura and Arthur’s Seat, the city never stops! If you like trying new food and drink, you won’t be stuck finding something to love there. With great rail links from places like Dunbar, and an easy route into Edinburgh from the A1, it’s easy to get to the capital from your holiday location in South East Scotland!
2. Enjoy the taste of Scotland!
With over 120 active whisky distilleries across Scotland, you’ll be spoilt for choice picking a distillery to take a tour of and sample the local liquor. The Glenkinchie Distillery and Visitors Centre in Pencaitland is home to ‘The Edinburgh Malt’ and will be the perfect place to explore during your South East Scotland break.
3. Explore the great outdoors and take to the sea!
Embrace the coast by learning to surf! The Berwickshire and East Lothian coastlines are known for their incredible surfing spots. There are a number of fantastic opportunities to learn something new during your visit. Take your loved one and hit the waves, providing laughs at first, but you may just discover something you enjoy doing together time and time again!
4. Learn about history
This region is rich in history due to the battles between the border! There are a number of castles and museums where you can learn more about the battles between the Scots and the English. You can also discover more about the history of the natural environment and the wildlife of the region at places like the Scottish Seabird Centre! Perfect for nature loving couples!
