Peebles - A thriving market town

 

Only 2 miles from Cringletie, The Royal Borough (Burgh) of Peebles in the Tweed Valley is one of Scotland's royal and ancient burghs. This pretty former county town is surrounded on all sides by beautiful countryside. The main street is wide and attractive with many buildings of historical interest. Nowadays it is a bustling market town and holiday resort with an excellent high street renowned for its fine selection of thriving independent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

Peebles has a marvellous theatre for the performing arts, the Eastgate Theatre which is located in a former church building on Eastgate. Worth a visit as they have put on a wide variety of events at the theatre. The annual Peebles Arts Festival is exciting and not to be missed, and so is the annual Food Festival.

The annual Beltane Folkore and Riders (June) Agricultural Show (August) and the Highland Games (September) attract visitors from all over the world.
