Getting There

The nearest rail station is in Berwick-upon-Tweed, but bus connections from there into Peebles are quite inconvenient. It's easier to get from Edinburgh to Peebles by a 50-minute bus ride. Bus fares from Edinburgh are around £7 one-way. Call tel. 08457/484-950 for rail and bus information.

If you're driving, take A703 south from Edinburgh. Continue west along A6091 from Melrose.
