Scottish Borders Historic Tourist Route to Edinburgh

When we went to Scotland in 2008 for a golf vacation, we stopped along the way in England in Toddington M1 Southbound and stayed overnight at the Travelodge Hotel.

The next day at around 7:25 a.m., we continued our road trip passing by Penrith and Carlisle, England. We were not really enthusiastic to go through the highway going to Glasgow and then to Edinburgh, and so, when we saw the signboard indicating the Tourist Route to Edinburgh A7, we just followed the direction up to Edinburgh.

We followed the Scottish Borders Historic Tourist Route via A7 to Edinburgh and the Lothians.

That was the nicest thing about having a road trip with our own car. We were able to see the beautiful sceneries of the place on our way to our next destination. We we were able to stop anytime we liked and just enjoyed the ride without really minding the time.

So, let me show you some pictures of the beautiful rolling hills and valleys of the Scottish Borders Historic Route via A7 on the way to Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Let me show you too some pictures of a few of the towns where we passed. Imagine yourself being inside the car, unaware of all what’s happening in your surroundings.

Just enjoy the calm panoramic views of the Scottish Borders and the Lothians despite the occasional heavy rain.

Yes, that is right, it rained heavily on certain areas so I was not really able to get a lot of photos. It was not easy taking photos with all the rain pouring on the windshield of the car.

As it was raining heavily, it really looked so dark. It just stopped raining when we arrived in Edinburgh.

But it was a good decision as the landscape of this part of Scotland was really beautiful. We arrived in Edinburgh just before 4:00 p.m.

I hope you enjoyed your virtual ride along the A7 Borders Historic Route and also along the River Tweed.

See you next time! We will surely have fun going around Edinburgh City virtually!
