Braefoot cottage is located on the picturesque and private Yair Estate, which is situated on the banks of the river tweed in the heart of the Scottish Borders, approximately 35 miles south of Edinburgh, 6 miles from Galashiels, 5 miles from Selkirk and 7 miles from Melrose.

A traditional grade 'B' listed stone cottage forming part of the Stable block, which has undergone extensive renovations for 2013. There are three bedrooms (can be configured as 2 twins & 1 double or 2 doubles & 1 twin), sleeping up to six guests. There is a family bathroom and further en-suite shower room, a Utility room with downstairs wc, open plan reception/dining room and separate kitchen.

Rental is fully inclusive of linen, towels, logs etc and the cottage comes fully equipped with all white goods (dishwasher tablets and washing powder provided), TV, DVD player, telephone and wifi. Responsible pets are allowed (at no extra cost) but are asked to remain downstairs.

Being located on the Southern Upland Walk and Cycle route, a 5 minute stroll from the river, a short drive of numerous golf courses and boasting a private tennis court, Braefoot Cottage is perhaps ideally suited to the outdoor enthusiast;

4 permits for the Galashiels Angling Association trout water are offered to any guests, along with right to fish the private water at Yair for trout (Mid March until the middle of September - please check). Salmon fishing is offered (separately and at additional cost) from September through to the end of November.

Yair forest offers excellent mountain biking trails and The Glentress centre at Innerleithen can be reached by bike (Southern Upland Way) or by car (15 mins).
