Christmas in the Scottish Borders

The Southern Uplands, the Scottish Borders, or simply 'the Borders': whatever you call them, one thing's for certain, and that's that they make a jolly good setting for a festive jaunt.

While the lure of a far-flung Christmas holiday spent reclining on a tropical beach can be strong indeed, we're firmly of the belief that those who succumb might be missing out — yes, really. When a Scottish staycation means waking up in the sheer luxury of a grand country house hotel, looking out over a landscape brimming with the promise of powdery snow and bracing frosty walks (followed with the promise of a warming dram by a crackling fire) what more could you want?

This, and more, is all yours when you celebrate Christmas in the Scottish Borders with Brightwater. Glittering drinks receptions, comradely carol singing, a traditional lunch with all the trimmings, and a guided tour of the beautiful Border country with a peek into the region's charming towns are just the icing on top of the Christmas pudding. Yes, the weather outside may be frightful, but new friends, good cheer, and that famously friendly Scottish hospitality are all sure to leave you feeling warm.
