LIFE in Peebles

Kencairn, The Lodge on the Tweed is situated just 2-3 minutes walk from Peebles High Street. The town centre  is crowded with restaurants bars, boutiques and shops that cater to both tourists and locals from Peebles and its’ surrounding towns and villages.

Peebles is also just 22 miles south of Edinburgh. So a short bus or car journey away. You could also catch the train from Galashiels or Stow.

Local activities include golf, hiking and mountain biking. Peebles has it’s own 18-hole golf course.

The mountain biking trails at Glentress and Innerleithen are part of the world renowned 7 Stanes. Both centres have a variety of trials for all abilities graded for difficulty.

Peebles is also close to the Southern Upland Way, which can be accessed at nearby Traquair. And there is a huge expanse of hiking available from the doorstep of The Lodge on the Tweed.

The town is dominated by the River Tweed, which is arguably at it’s best as it meanders through Peebles.

The Tweed begins its’ journey in Tweedsdale, in the Borders hills above Moffat, and passes through Peebles before heading to the North Sea on the east coast at Berwick.

The River Tweed is one of Scotland’s finest salmon rivers and some of the best fishing can be enjoyed along the river, just to the east of Peebles.
