Peebles is a royal burgh located in the Scottish Borders region.
It is most charming during the Autumn months. You can see hills full of brown red and yellow-colored trees. Some of them look like they’ve been sprinkled with the golden dust.
There’s beautiful church overlooking River Tweed (top photo), and Tweed Bridge connecting two parts of the town (below).
From the bridge, You can see Neidpath Castle hugged by an array of Fall trees.
And at the foot of the bridge, there’s another church (Peebles Old Parish Church) with bells cheerfully tolling on full hour. City Center has cafes, confectionery shop, Tweeddale Museum And Gallery, cinema, bookstore, small grocers and a whole range of other shops.
Everything here is small-town like. Even chain coffee shops or clothing boutiques seem petite.
The bookstore is located in a peaceful nook between two buildings. On the left side to the bookstore entrance, there’s a newly painted mural that celebrates life in the Peebles area.
City center overlooks River Tweed.
They are located short (5-minute) car ride from the City Center.
Neidpath Castle is an impressive looking L-shaped building.
It was privately owned since its construction. Over the years it belonged to 3 famous Scottish families and it’s maintained by Douglas family successors to this day.

If nature is your jam, visit Cardrona Forest (located east of the city centre; 5-minute car ride).
Paths in the forest are versatile from wheelchair accessible to steep hills.
The most popular wheelchair accessible path has some amazing views (and sheep to keep your company!).
