There are so many fun activities in the Scottish Borders, especially if you love the great outdoors.
Walking is a great attraction for both locals and tourists. From gentle trails to seriously long walks such as St. Cuthbert's Way and part of the 212-mile-long Southern Upland Way. You could walk for many hundreds of miles without covering the same path twice. Often your dog can come along too, just check first. (With the guidebooks and with the dog too!)
Cycling is also popular in the area with something for everyone from little ones meandering along safe cycle tracks to their teenage siblings (and often mum and dad) careering down insanely steep world-famous Glentress mountain biking tracks.
There's lots of scope for adventuring too. Why not try quad biking, sailing, rafting, ballooning, clay pigeon shooting, gliding, or even paddling your own canoe?
On the coast you can try deep sea fishing, or even diving at the magnificent St. Abb's Head, a World-Heritage site where the underwater sea life below these magnificent cliffs is sublime.
If it rains (or even if it doesn't) there are leisure centres in most of the towns with swimming pools and gyms. There's bowling, archery, skating and curling in winter, and of course you can click on to the arts section to see check out entertainment.
