Activities & Things To Do

Rover Goes Rural in the Scottish Borders

Only a 20-minute car ride from Chirnside, Melrose Abbey is a great place to have some quality outdoor time with your pooch. Dogs are welcome to explore the partly ruined Melrose Abbey on lead and there are lots of lovely walks from there..

Interesting landmarks depict local history well, such as the statue of William Wallace on the nearby Bemersyde Estate. The 1200 acres is in an AONB and has walled and sunken gardens, ancient woodland, and one of the world’s best Atlantic salmon rivers. There is free parking should you drive here.

The Wagging Tail Wall Walk

Take this easy ramble from Berwick upon Tweed, the northernmost town in England. The four miles take in a short stretch of pristine coastline before circling the town via the Elizabethan ramparts and sturdy town walls where paws are permitted.

There is the chance for Laddie and Lassie to paddle on the sandy beach and enough time for you to explore the galleries and museums in Berwick upon Tweed even though it is three hours at an amble, set aside a full day because there is loads to see.

Holy Island Hound Trip

Just half an hour’s drive from Chirnside, this iconic island has to be one of your day’s out with the dogs. Check the tide times because, as lovely as it is, you don’t want to be left stranded when the water floods the causeway.

There is so much to see in such a small space. The 1,000 acres packs a surprising punch with historical sites to visit, quaint shops to browse in, and a good few dog-friendly pubs.

About Holidays In Chirnside With Dogs

Chirnside is in Berwickshire on Scottish Borders near East Lothian, a beautiful area with stunning holiday cottages often overlooked by tourists intent on heading up to the lochs, Highlands, the capital Edinburgh. It is on an elevated position overlooking the River Whiteadder with panoramic views of the Lammermuir and Cheviot Hills.

It has a dovecot, dating back to the 1500s and a parish church circa 11040, evidence of the village’s long history. Every summer, the only “closed roads’” car rally on mainland Britain takes place in and around the Scottish Borders as a memorial to its champion Chirnside-born Jim Clark.

You can take the whole family out and explore the coastline, be it driving, cycling, walking, or even by sea. The coastal town of Eyemouth is worth a visit when you have settled into your dog-friendly cottage in Chirnside. It has a strong fishing heritage on display in the museum, and the hidden rooms of the Gunsgreen House and along the smugglers’ trail is fascinating. Paws aren’t permitted underground, but you can take it in turns to look after Laddie.

Another cross-border attraction has to be Berwick Upon Tweed that is jam-packed with quirky shops and has a town wall and ramparts that remain pretty much intact since they were built hundreds of years ago.

It will come as no surprise that there is a magnificent golf course close by. Duns Golf Club offers day memberships so you can take to the greens while the others chill out at the cottage or go for a walk with the dogs.
