It is a must to climb the Ruberslaw Hill and head down to the local pub for lunch afterwards. Hiking trails are abundant in this area and there are also great opportunities for horse riding. The area is also steeped in history, a 150 ft tower to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo being one of the attractions. The mill town of Hawick is close by too.
