What's on Guide to the Scottish Borders - April 2018

Here at The Red Lion, we like to help you plan ahead so that you can make the most of your stay. With spring finally arriving, and Easter coming up, there are so many things to see and do here in the Scottish Borders over the next few weeks.

Here's our What's On Guide for April.

Don't forget, you can contact us to book your stay, or if you prefer, you can book online.

We look forward to welcoming you - or welcoming you back!
