Location description from owner

The Scotland region

This part of the Borders was the hunting grounds of the Scottish kings of old, and home to Sir Walter Scott at Abbotsford House. William Wallace, Bonnie Prince Charlie, and Mary Queen of Scott's have all contributed to the rich cultural heritage of the area.

Take a drive or cycle through some gorgeous countryside and visit castles, abbeys, stately homes and museums as well as some pretty towns full of character and history such as Melrose, Kelso, and Peebles.

However, it is probably the miles and miles of unspoilt countryside, still wild and inspiring, which makes the Ettrick valley so special for walkers, cyclists, anglers, wildlife enthusiasts and anyone in search of a little tranquillity.

Selkirk

The area offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. Fishing, cycling, walking, and bird watching can all be based from the house, with boating, kayaking, horse riding and several golf courses within about 30 mins, as well as the excellent mountain biking centres of Glentress and Innerleithen. The nearby Buccleuch Estate offers some of the best fishing and shooting in Scotland.

The Ettrick River is famous for it's salmon fishing and is only a 5 minute walk from the house. Permits can be bought locally or arranged in advance. Local tuition is also available by arrangement. There are Lochs and Reservoirs around the area where shore and/or boat fishing is available.

The quiet rolling country roads around Ettrick View are perfect for cyclists, and six national walking routes wend their way through the Scottish Borders including The Southern Upland Way, The Borders Abbey Way and St. Cuthbert's Walk. There are also many woodland, hill, river and village walks nearby. The stunning settings of St Mary's Loch and the Grey Mare's Tail waterfall are a short drive away.

The Tweed Valley offers a plentiful choice of family friendly days out, with play parks, shopping and plenty of historical interest, as well as summer festivities such as local towns' summer common riding festivities, rugby sevens tournaments, and Traquair's Medieval and Summer Fairs.

Selkirk, our closest town has a variety of shops, pubs, and restaurants, a golf course, swimming pool, some lovely walks, and a new 5 star Lochcarron textile visitor centre with tours around a working mill.

There are stunning Historic Abbeys and houses close by including Bowhill, Abbotsford, Traquair House and Floors Castle. These all have amazing collections as well as fantastic gardens and woodland/river walks. There is a great adventure playground at Bowhill, and the Salmon Viewing Centre at Philiphaugh is also well worth a day out.

For even more inspiration and inner peace, visit the Samyeling Tibetan Buddist Temple and Peace gardens.
