With some mouth-watering matches to look forward to in the Rugby World Cup in Japan this Autumn, Scotland’s home matches in the Six Nations early next year are the next chance to see the national team compete on home soil, and both matches are sure to be a sell-out. You could plan ahead and use the Borders Railway to combine the England or France game at Murrayfield with a lovely break here at Burts and Townhouse. After the game just jump on the train at Waverley and you can be back in Tweedbank in under an hour.
