The Royal Burgh of Peebles

South of Scotland TREC are delighted to be hosting the TREC GB Championships this year and are looking forward to welcoming you all for a great weekend of competition in Peebles.

Peebles is the third largest of the Scottish Borders towns. It is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and sits on either side of the River Tweed, famous for Salmon fishing.It is a thriving community today but has had its share of ups and downs over the centuries.

Firstly the name Peebles is thought to have come from the old Welsh language Cumbric. The word it is thought to have derived from is “Pebyl” which has the meaning “ a place to pitch your tent”

How appropriate for our camping treccies!

It was proclaimed a Royal Burgh way back in time during the reign of King David 1st (1124-1153) 

There are a lot of activities and things to do in Peebles as diverse as historical town walks to serious off road mountain bilking, golf, cycling, fishing, horse riding and of course the High Street has a fabulous selection of local shops. There are numerous eateries and pubs if you would like to explore the gastronomic delights.

You can see why we selected Peebles, there is a bit of something for everyone and we hope that you get to experience what the local area has to offer.

I have listed a few web site details which may be of interest to you in the local area.
