Borders Bivvy and Breakfast
This experience is a single night micro-adventure set in the iconic Eildon Hills, which stand over the historic Borders town of Melrose. Bed and breakfast with a difference!
Why not escape the city for a night under the stars? Catch a train on the scenic Borders Railway to the heart of the Scottish Borders for a bit of adventure.
In this micro-adventure you will experience adventure without having to trek into the wilderness, carry lots of stuff or stay away too long.
Melrose is a short bus ride from the station. After you have eaten well and braced yourself for a night in the outdoors you will meet your guide. We will then walk up into the Eildons (about a 1 hour walk) to find a sheltered spot for the night!
From there we'll find a vantage point to watch the sunset before a having hot drink and settling in for a night under the stars (fingers crossed).
The early summer sun will wake and slowly warm you before we return to Melrose to recuperate with a cooked breakfast and coffee.
With all other essential equipment provided, you will just need a sleeping bag, warm clothes and a sense of (micro)adventure.
