23 miles south of Edinburgh, this romantic family-run 18th century Castle overlooking the picturesque town of Peebles provides friendly, elegant surroundings. Our 12 en-suite rooms including 2 luxury romantic suites and 2 four poster rooms, with views over Peebles and onto the Moorfoot Hills are spacious and characterful. The restaurant offers a menu of imaginative food using finest Scottish produce whilst lighter meals are served in the lounge, library or gardens. This is the ideal base for a break with golf courses and fishing on the Tweed, Traquair House, Abbotsford and Neidpath Castle close by and excellent walking and scenery. Don't forget Edinburgh is less than an hour away!
