Things to do and see
Sorbietrees Bed and Breakfast caters for all types of tourist and visitors to the Borders and is an ideal base for a peaceful relaxing holiday exploring Scotland's Castles, Abbeys, Country Houses, along with the history, culture and wildlife of the Borders Reivers country.
Take a trip to Hermitage Castle, this vast eerie fortress not only witnessed long years of turbulent border reiving, but it played host to the tragic Mary Queen of Scots when she snatched two hours' rendezvous with her lover Bothwell. You can then continue the journey by visiting Mary's house in Jedburgh along with the beautiful Abbey.
