Scottish BordersThis large county, producer of the world famous knitted goods and tweed, includes some of the best views found anywhere in the world. The famous River Tweed runs through the Borders region and is complemented by the naturally beautiful Border Hills. Twenty caravan parks service the region and there is much of interest for mobile home holidaymakers.
The Borders’ place-names reflect successive waves of invaders from Celtic to Norman. Its legend contains some of the most graphic accounts of the emergence of nationhood. The Scottish Borders is said to be more sung in ballad than any other place on the face of the earth. Stalking the pages of Borders history are epic characters including King Arthur and Merlin, William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, and Mary Queen of Scots. Ancient fortifications, battle-fields, standing stones and ruined abbeys are the essential backdrop of this region, as potent to the imagination now as they were to Sir Walter Scott and James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd, nearly 200 years ago. There is mystery and poetry for static caravan and log cabin tourists in the historic hills and valleys of the Scottish Borders. Two miles east of Galashiels lies Abbotsford, home to the great novelist Sir Walter Scott, author of ‘Rob Roy’ and ‘Ivanhoe’. Sir Walter Scott is buried in the ruins of Dryburgh Abbey, close to his favourite viewpoint of the Eildon Hills known as Scott‘s View. A 22 foot high sandstone statue of William Wallace is also within easy walking distance for mobile home holidaymakers.
Static caravan owners that have outdoor hobbies or are looking to take one up will find the Scottish Borders the perfect place to do so. Make your static caravan or log cabin a home base from which you can pursue your favourite holiday activity. The changing seasons do nothing to lessen the plentiful ways to enjoy the Borders. Walking here is excellent at any time of year but particularly rewarding amid magnificent seasonal hues. Golfers are spoilt for choice as well, with 21 courses on offer, while top-class fishing continues to attract a local and international following. The quieter months provide the ideal opportunity for static caravan owners to try something different at their own speed. Take to the hills for a mountain bike ride on expertly-designed downhill tracks. Glentress, near Peebles, is rated as 'the best dedicated mountain bike centre in Britain' by Mountain Bike Rider Magazine. Opportunities abound for a variety of other activities for mobile home holidaymakers – archery, falconry, diving, clay pigeon shooting, quad bike riding and canoeing.
