Welcome to Peebles - The Royal Burgh
Nestled amongst the rolling Border hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the gorgeous Borders town of Peebles straddles the glorious River Tweed - world renowned for its salmon fishing.
The towns motto is drawn from its strong association with the Tweed - "CONTRA NANDO INCREMENTUM" or "increase by swimming against the current" - but the river is only one of the many treasures that Peebles has offer.
Made a Royal Burgh in 1152 by King David I of Scotland, Peebles has for many years been a market town cherished by locals and visitors alike, valued for its picturesque and unspoilt character.
The town has something for everyone, from activities like fishing, walking, golf, cycling and horse riding to fine shopping, award winning restaurants and outstanding accommodation. Click here to read more...
