The Scottish Borders region

Barely more than 20 miles separates one Scottish Borders town from the next. These towns have a history extensively shaped by centuries of warfare and there are many historial buildings to mark this past.

Magnificent scenery and vast countryside make the Scottish Borders a great walking region. There are 1500miles of dedicated walking pathways in the Borders and it is home to six national walks including the Abbeys Borders Walk, 64mile St Cuthbert’s Walk, the finish of the Pennine Way, Berwickshire Coastal Path part of the 212 mile Southern Upland Way & finally the John Buchan Way which passes your doorstep at The Bothy Holiday let. This walks covers 12 miles from Peebles to Broughton and is named after the authors many associations with the area.

The Scottish Borders also hosts the award winning 7 stanes which are 7 mountain biking centres including Glentress and Innerleithen which are within 3 & 6 miles respectively from The Bothy with the other 6 (Ae, Newcastleton, Mabie, Dalbettie, Kirroughtree and Glentrool) in neighbouring Dumfries and Galloway.


The Royal burgh of Peebles is a thriving market town and offers an excellent array of amenities including banks, post office, a range of independent shops, supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants.

The local area is particularly well served for recreational activities with golf courses, fishing, walking and world class mountain biking all within easy reach.

There is good access from Peebles to the other borders towns via the road network with the A703 giving access to Edinburgh. A regular bus service runs to and from the capital city.

"Home comfort in a great location for walks in town and country"

This is a sweet little apartment with all the amenities and in a lovely setting. The cows used to come to the window to say hello every morning! It is also within walking distance of the delightful town of Peebles with its great selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. The only down side was having neighbours clomping about above but luckily they only stayed a couple of nights.

Thank you for your positive comments. The noise was due a visitor in the neighbouring property convalescing from a foot operation and she was in a heavy boot plaster with crutches. I did not think about the potential noise this would have caused, I hope you understand and accept my apologies. Ruth
