This tour starts at your Edinburgh hotel and from there we'll head down the east coast through the charming East Lothian towns of North Berwick and Dunbar. As we travel further down the coast we'll cross the border at the aincient border town of Berwick upon tweed.

from here we travel further south stopping at Alnwick where we'll stop for a look at Alnwick castle.

The castle is full of fascinating things to see and has a multitude of mysteries to uncover. Wander around the medieval walls and be amazed by the large lavish state rooms, which amongst other things house a collection of 14,000 catalogued books in the Library. While you walk around the castle you may recognise it as a location from some of the Harry Potter films and from Downton Abbey. You can even take part in a broomstick training session on the very spot where Harry had his first flying lesson – no matter what age you are! For those who want to stay on the ground, there are various museums and exhibitions to discover inside the castle, ranging from a Downtown Abbey exhibition featuring photography, costumes and props from the show, to the Castle Museum which tells the tale of Alnwick Castle’s most famous son Henry ‘Hotspur’ Percy.

The next stop on our tour is Melrose abbey, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful ruins in Europe. It was founded in 1136 by Cistercian monks at the request of King David I of Scotland and built in the Gothic manner, in the form of a St. John's Cross. Besides from being the final resting place to a number of Scottish kings and nobles, Robert the Bruce’ s heart is thought to be buried in the Abbey as well. The lead container that is believed to contain the heart was found in 1921 below the Chapter House site and was reburied in 1998 with a plinth covering the burial site. 

Just a short distance from Melrose abbey is one of the most beautiful views in scotland. 
Scott's View is a viewpoint in the Scottish Borders, overlooking the valley of the River Tweed, which is reputed to be one of the favourite views of Sir Walter Scott.

From here we head on back up the road to Edinburgh where our tour ends
