The Borders is "an angler's paradise and the Tweed is the jewel in its crown" (VisitScotland). Leitholm is ideally situated for fishing either the Lower Tweed or the Junction Pool at Kelso, which is one of the finest beats on the Tweed. Trout and coarse fishing are also available on the Tweed and its tributaries. The Whiteadder, the Blackadder and the Till are all within a short drive from Nisbet House.
There are many splendid golf courses within a short drive from Leitholm, including Duns, the Hirsel in Coldstream (Runner up in the Borders Award for the Most Visitor Friendly Golf Club), the championship course at the Roxburghe Hotel and the Kelso course.

The Scottish Borders Council offers a programme of guided walks ranging in length from two to twelve miles.
The cliffs and beaches between Dunbar and Berwick-upon-Tweed abound in birdlife, with a wide variety of the less common seabirds and waders to be seen. It's a Birdwatchers' paradise!
