The Scottish Borders region

Whatever you are looking for The Scottish Border's takes some beating. The hills and rivers range from the majestic to the tame and have inspired artists and writers such as Walter Scott and James Hogg (otherwise known as the Ettrick Shepherd). Those same hills are a walker's or mountain biker's dream. Why not venture along part of the Southern Upland or St Cuthbert's Way or explore the 7Stanes Mountain bike trails?

Innerleithen is the ideal base for exploring the Borders. Peebles, Melrose and Moffat are just a few of the small towns within easy reach. All have their own unique style, and you will find a range of interesting shops, museums and coffee shops in each place. If visiting stately homes is your bag then you will be pleased to know that you can fill your days with trips to the Bowhill Estate, Abbotsford (home of Walter Scott) , Mellerstane House and Thirlestane.

Have a day out in Edinburgh while you're here. It is on a direct bus route from Innerleithen, or a 50 minute drive away.

There is so much to do you can't possibly get bored in the Borders.


Surrounded by outstanding countryside, and located on the river Tweed, Innerleithen caters exceptionally well for holiday-makers. On Cosaig's doorstep you will find not only a selection of interesting shops, friendly pubs and small restaurants, but also tourist attractions such as Traquair House, the National Trust's Robert Smail's Printing Works and St. Ronan's Wells.

For the more active there is a multitude of lovely local walks and bike rides. Indeed Innerleithen is famous for it's downhill track which is one of the 7stanes mountain bike trails. Very nearly complete is a new all-purpose path which will link Innerleithen, Cardrona and Peebles, and which will take you to Glentress, another huge draw for mountain bikers. Glentress is also the home of a new Go-Ape tree top adventure course. If you are fond of swimming, both Peebles and nearby Galashiels have swimming pools. Peebles Hydro hotel also runs Day Spa breaks.

The Scottish Border's towns are renowned for their summer festivals, and Innerleithen is no exception, boasting the oldest organised sports meeting in Scotland. St Ronan's Games Week is really a misnomer with activities for people of all ages spreading over 10 days. Innerleithen knows how to party! Other annual treats include the Traquair Fair and many mountain biking events.

"Cosy cosaig! home from home."

A delightful, well equipped holiday cottage set in a beautiful location. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. The owners were extremely helpful and very thoughtful, from fresh flowers to locally sourced produce in our welcome pack, nothing seemed to have been overlooked.
We found the local walks and scenery breathtakingly beautiful and enjoyed using local transport to visit Edinburgh city center.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It's great to think that the cottage is appreciated by our guests, and that our efforts to make it feel homely are worthwhile. We hope that we will see you again soon. Kind Regards, Jennifer
