This lovely 18th century building will appeal to those who are romantic at heart and who appreciate a historic property surrounded by some of the loveliest scenery in Scotland. This was our first overnight stay in Peebles and while there we did the Cademuir Hill...

On a visit to the international Scotland v Italy we decided to stay out of Edinburgh and came upon this lovely hotel. Extremely welcoming staff, room was comfortable, log fire in the bar area was exactly what was needed after a very wet journey. Excellent range of bottled beers or whiskies. Food was very good and homely, excellent portions and...
