What's On in the Scottish Borders - July 2018

There’s so much to see and do this month. Come and stay at The Red Lion in July and you can take part in a wide range of activities.

If you're coming to the Borders for A Dog's Day Out at Traquair House, did you know that dogs stay for free here at The Red Lion? VIDs (Very Important Dogs) also receive hand-baked dog treats from Wellybix.

During ‘Beach Week’, why not join the Marine Rangers for a clean-up of Berwickshire's shores? Equipment is provided. All ages welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

And don't miss our guide to Earlston Civic Week, 1st-7th July.
