Leisure Activities
Duns Castle is ideal as a base for a wide variety of activities and the Scottish Borders offers a wealth of attractions and information on things to do and see for individuals, groups and familes. Yet although the estate borders the county town of Duns, it has complete seclusion and rises from 400 to 800 feet into the Lammermuir hills.

Hills & Wildlife
