Deloraineshiel is a secluded shepherd's cottage on a working sheep farm, located in the heart of the Scottish Borders. This is The Ettrick Shepherd country, famously portrayed in the works of James Hogg, in which Deloraineshiel is mentioned.

The Scottish Borders region
The Scottish Borders are the ideal location to enjoy beautiful scenic views, rugged landscapes and a wealth of Scottish history, while being only a 1 hour drive away from the bustling Scottish captial city, Edinburgh.
Enjoy the best of all Scotland has to offer, in the often over looked area of natural beauty. We can arrange shooting on the estate or fishing on the rivers and lochs. Many golf courses are within a short drive, extensive walking and cycling routes lead from the house or are close by. We can suggest itineraries for you, perhaps a drive to Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway for shopping, stopping off at the Grey Mare's Tail on the way. A wander around the gardens and house at Bowhill. A cycle to Innerleithen for the world famous mountain biking trails. So many options, but if you just want to relax, just hang out at the house and enjoy the view and bird life.
