What's on Guide to the Scottish Borders- September 2017

Scattered by Steve Messam, Mellerstain House

The main event in the Borders this month is, undoubtedly, the Tour of Britain Cycle Race, which will be passing through on Sunday 3rd September. (It's such a big event, we've devoted a whole blog post to it!) But, in addition to this spectacular race, there are lots of things to do here this month, including the Scottish Borders Heritage Festival, which kicks-off on 1st September. And, don't forget Steve Messam's sculptures are only on display at Mellerstain until 11th September.
