The main route through the western Scottish Borders is the A7, on which you find the important town of Hawick.
This is home to the impressive Borders Distillery, the first (legal) whisky distillery to operate in the Scottish Borders since 1837.
The town is best known for giving its name to a regiment of the British Army, the Coldstream Guards, formed in 1650.
Coldstream lies just half the width of the River Tweed away from England and has had an eventful history as a result.
Of the castle that once played such a central part in repeated Anglo-Scottish wars, nothing now remains, though the Victorians did build the Castle Jail on the site.
To its north is the William Wallace Statue and the magnificent Scott's View.On the edge of the Cheviots south east of Kelso lie the twin villages of Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm, the latter being best known as being the start or finish of the Pennine Way.Also close to the border south of Yetholm is the hamlet of Hownam.Three miles along the coast are the clifftop ruins of Fast Castle.West of St Abbs the A1 runs past Cockburnspath and close to the hidden gem of Cove Inland from the North Sea Coast and the A1 lie the Lammermuir Hills, with the villages of Gifford to their north and Duns to their south.
