Swinton

This quaint and picturesque town lies in the Scottish Borders, nestled between Coldstream and Duns within scenic Berwickshire. This area is well known for its ample golfing, fishing and outdoor activity opportunities, including exploring the wondrous coastline and tranquil countryside by foot or bike. Experience traditional border hospitality and dine on freshly caught local seafood in one of the many fine restaurants or pubs in the area.

There are a number of historical sites within the area that are well worth the visit, including Hadrian’s Wall, Hume Castle, Thirlestane Castle and many more. Swinton also offers an excellent base for exploring the Scottish Borders and further afield into either Scotland or the North of England.

Scottish Seabird Centre

Using state of the art cameras, visitors can zoom in on and observe the spectacular array of seabirds in their natural habitat. The best thing about this centre is that it is non-intrusive, but provides an opportunity to get up close to the birds and observe their natural behaviours. Spot a number of species of seabird, from the largest colony of puffins on the East Coast, to the world’s largest colony of Northern gannets.

Flodden Battlefield and Exomuseum

Visit the very site of the bloodshed from over 500 years ago. This was the last battlefield that a British monarch fell in battle, as well as over 14,000 men. There are illustrated signs featured here now, explaining the aspects of the battle for guests to read as they walk around the site, from chronology of events to visualisations of the scale of the battle. The ecomuseum is an open museum linking 40 sites and other aspects of heritage nationwide, which have a link to the Battle of Flodden, through history, folklore, or legend.

Norham Castle

This ruinous castle stands proud upon a rocky bluff beside the River Tweed on the English-Scottish border. The castle is currently in England, but has changed hands throughout history 4 times, with many more unsuccessful sieges taking place. The castle was built in the year 1121 and was in continuous use until roughly 1596 when it fell into severe disrepair.
