Burnbrae is within 60 minutes drive from Edinburgh, & 50mins drive from fishing villages, superb coastal scenery, Border towns, Cheviot and Ettrick hills. Ideal for visiting the many abbeys, gardens and stately homes which are found nearby (Floors Castle and Mellerstain are just a few minutes away). Just 3 miles from Kelso with its splendid square, magnificent abbey ruins and individual shops and a wide selection of places to eat.

The quiet country roads are a joy for motorists and cyclists alike. More adventurous mountain bikers can test their nerves on the Glentress trails. For the less daring, the Borders offers a wide variety of golf courses, fishing, horse-riding, walking - from strenuous hikes up the Cheviot to peaceful strolls amongst the splendid Borders scenery - or admiring the textiles, pottery, woodwork and paintings on show in the numerous studios and galleries to be found within the area.....and you can return to relax in the peace of Burnbrae.

The owners live on site and enjoy helping guests with information and other assistance.

We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you to Burnbrae.

The Scottish Borders region

Burnbrae is located in the heart of the beautiful Scottish Borders, ideal for exploring both the English and Scottish Borders with many historical houses and beautiful gardens. Burnbrae is 60 minutes from Edinburgh and 50 mins from the east coast fishing villages and towns.

Cycling is a particular pleasure on the network of quiet lanes around Burnbrae. There are many shorter trails from most of the main towns and also some longer distance routes including the 4 Abbeys way an 88km (55 mile) circular route linking the four main abbeys in the Scottish Borders - Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh. The route follows mainly quiet roads, although short stretches on A roads are unavoidable, a scenic route that takes in many historic interest points. The Scottish Borders is now one of the most cyclist friendly areas of Scotland. In the hills are many tracks which can be cycled by those with the necessary stamina and equipment. In Glentress forest, there are extensive cycling tracks separate from walking paths.

The Tweed River (5 km ) away from Burnbrae has some of the best fishing in the world.
