Scotstoun Farmhouse

Scottish Borders

Contemporary conversion in a sweet garden with views to the hills - a hop from Edinburgh. Or bring the dog and explore the stunning Borders


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 7


Walkers, birdwatchers and naturalists flock to the Border hills – a short hop to Edinburgh but dreamily peaceful. A long and lovely driveway takes you past the big house and through a sturdy stone archway to a light, contemporary and well-designed home hiding inside a 18th-century farm building. Double height ceilings and a new window in the gable give magnificent views across fields; the light, lofty living area is open plan with a cosy log stove, wooden floors, white walls and fresh flowers from the walled garden; an upstairs gallery study is a quiet place to work or watch TV. The sleek kitchen has pale wood units, smooth lines and all you need for serious cooking, and you eat at an oak table with Arne Jacobsen chairs. Sleep deeply in uncluttered bedrooms with white walls, good lighting and colourful Scottish art on the walls; white bathrooms sparkle. Wander the stunning garden and admire flowers, shrubs, herbs, orchard… a good spot for outdoor eating too. More adventurous souls can stride the Southern Upland Way or visit Sir Walter Scott’s home. Great fun for families and groups of friends.
