The Scottish Borders Experience
There’s a lot more in Scotland than the familiar scenes of wild Highland hills. We live in the Scottish Borders, a region of exceptional natural beauty that’s often forgotten as a destination. We have a long history, strong heritage and an abundance of hills quite similar to those of the popular Highlands, all within a stones throw (or about an hour) from the heart of Edinburgh - ideal for outlanders and locals alike, especially if you’re short on time and wish to explore and experience part of Scotland’s great outdoors. Enjoy a leisurely drive in our Mercedes Benz through scenic roads, pausing to capture breathtaking images in areas of incredible natural wonder.
Guaranteed to be photo-ready come wind, rain or Scottish sunshine, each unmissable location brings new and exciting opportunities for you and your partner to discover. To finish, a wee dram of local whisky and a bite of homemade shortbread to revive you both after embracing our unpredictable elements! We’ve discovered some of the Borders’ best locations for our handpicked tours, designed to offer everyone a unique photoshoot adventure in the Scottish Borders. Explore each experience today…
Ruin (+ river walk)
A mere 25 minute train journey south of Edinburgh is enough to land you on the edge of the Scottish Borders. Together we’ll drive across the Midlothian boundary, uncovering the hidden heritage than can be found in this ancient land. With a majestic Castle ruin set in acres of peaceful pasture to explore, you’ll feel at ease with your loved one as you cast relaxed and romantic moments. Remote scenic roads await, winding through rolling countryside to unveil a magnificent valley, carved calmly over time. Breathe in the bracing Borders’ air and share in the forgotten beauty of nature together, captured professionally to enjoy for a long time to come.
