Luxury accommodation in the heart of the Scottish borders

A three bed hideaway, a stones throw away from world-beating mountain bike trails, scenic golf courses, and exceptional walking routes along the river Tweed.

Peebles

Peebles has a host of pubs, shops and picturesque walks with only a 10 minute drive from Innerleithen or a 40 min bike ride along the river tweed.

The Ancient and Royal Burgh of Peebles is a genteel, handsome town on the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders.

The rarefied town of Peebles is situated in the west of the Scottish Borders, just 45 minutes away from Edinburgh. It sits on the north bank of the River Tweed, where there is parkland with pleasant riverside walks, while the wide high street has a mix of Victorian architecture.

The town pre-dates the reign of King David I (1124-53). The monarchy made many visits in the 15th and 16th centuries – by King James III in particular. Peebles was relatively untouched by the conflict that characterised life in the Borders at that time.

The high street has an old Mercat Cross and the ruined Cross Kirk, standing high above Eddleston Water, was founded in 1261. There are many fine buildings in the town, one of which is the Chambers Institute, gifted to the town by two of its famous sons, Robert and William Chambers. They were born in Peebles in the 18th century, and were the founders of the famous publishing and printing company that bears their name.

As with most Scottish Borders towns, golf, fishing, mountain biking and walking are popular pursuits, with Tweeddale Forest and the Southern Upland Way within easy reach.

Innerleithen Town

Innerleithen is one of the larger Borders towns; you’ll feel that you’ve entered a hub of activity when you arrive. It’s also dramatically beautiful. Surrounded by hills and glens, the town is where the Tweed and Leithen rivers join, then separate. Historically, Innerleithen dates back to pre-Roman times, and there are artifacts all around for you to see. Once a booming industrial town of wool mills, today it’s a great destination for outdoor activities including hiking, biking, and fly-fishing.

Innerleithen is close to the vibrant City of Edinburgh, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it makes a nice day trip or evening visit – it is also an alternative place to base yourself if attending an Event or Festival in the Capital.

 Many touring road cyclists ride to Edinburgh and return by train.

Innerleithen is also an ideal base for travellers on the Southern Upland Way,  The Coast Castles NCR1 route, The Great North Trail and the Capital Trail – all which pass through Innerleithen.
