Duns is a quaint and typical Scottish Borders town, focused around its old central market where farmers once sold and traded livestock and produce. Today, the most visited sites in the area of Duns is Duns Castle, a fighting tower with over 600 years of history, and was the home to Lady Elizabeth Seton, an ancestor of the lineage that led to the crown of Mary Queen of Scots. The interior of the castle is decorated and furnished with magnificent 17th century pieces, and guests can enjoy an array of activities, from clay pigeon, falconry, and off road driving, to fishing croquet and tennis. Duns is also the birthplace of Scotland’s Formula 1 champion driver Jim Clark, and car enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to the local Jim Clark Museum.
This picturesque town is one of southern Scotland’s prettiest, and sits at the confluence of the Tweed and Teviot Rivers. Filled with beautiful architecture, such as the ruined Roxburgh Castle and Keslo Abbey, however, its most famous site would have to be the extravagant Floors Castle, the seat of the Duke of Roxburgh and the largest inhabited house in all of Scotland.
