What To Expect

Venture into the Scottish Borders and make your way to the legendary Hadrian’s Wall in Roman Britain by going on this fun-filled, educational tour! Begin by meeting up with an accommodating, knowledgeable English-speaking tour guide at Rabbie's Café Bar, Waterloo Place in Edinburgh. From there, you will ride on a coach and travel down Roman Dere Street, which linked the supply ports of the south of England up to modern day Scotland. Then you’ll make your way to your first stop of the tour, the border town of Jedburgh, a historic burgh dominated by a magnificent 12th century Augustinian Abbey. Once you arrive at Jedburgh, you’ll have time to take a short walk through its narrow streets and explore its ruins. After Jedburgh, you’ll continue south and make a stop at the scenic Carter Bar on the edge of the Cheviot Hills. This crossing point between Scotland and England runs close to the ancient Roman road and has formed the border between the two countries for the past 700 years. From there, the tour continues through the magnificent forests of Northumberland National Park before turning west towards Hadrian’s Wall. Upon arrive at the wall, you’ll follow the road that takes you along the south side of the wall, stopping at Steel Rigg. You’ll have time to walk beside the wall and experience the isolation that Roman foot soldiers would have experienced as they fought for their empire against the “barbarians” from the north. You continue your journey along the wall where your guide will recommend the best of the sites to visit; you’ll have time to explore sections of the wall or the remains of the Roman settlements before you turn north and travel back to Edinburgh through the Galloway Hills.
