A day by the sea in Scotland.

The Borders is a beautifully lush area in summer, with plenty to discover right at our doorstep. SCHLOSS Roxburghe is also just half an hour’s drive from the sea – so it’s perfectly located for taking a day trip to visit some of Scotland’s finest beaches. Coldingham Bay, for example, is one of several beaches on the Berwickshire coast and has even won an award for being an especially clean and sustainable destination. Get to the beach early to catch the morning sun on the glistening sea and climb the hillock in the south of the beach for a fantastic view along the coastline. Located in the town of Eyemouth, Coldingham Bay is a relaxed place that is appreciated by surfers and dog walkers alike. From here, you can take a walk to the nearby fishing village of St Abbs along the Creel Path and marvel at the clear sea. The rocky beach of St Abbs is especially popular with snorkelers and divers.
