We are alongside the John Buchan Way, one mile from Peebles town centre, 2 miles from Glentress Forest & 7 miles from the downhill course at Innerleithen. There are also plenty of walking trails in the hills & forests behind the house & nearby.



Traquair House About 5 miles down the road – gardens, woodland walks, café, shop, maze & a brewery!

Kailzie Gardens - Beautiful gardens, café, shop & trout pond, about 4 miles away.

Dawyck Botanic Gardens - About 6 miles south-west of us, exceptional botanical garden with an award-winning visitor centre.

Neidpath Castle - Peebles’ ‘local’ castle, about a 1.5 mile walk.

Cademuir Hill Fort is an Iron Age Fort & is immediately (well a mile or two) behind our house & an amazing walk.

Rosslyn Chapel - A bit further afield (about 12 miles north of us), but a unique place, particularly if you’re into all that Da Vinci Code stuff.
