Overview

The cottage is situated just off the B7062 about four miles from Innerleithen and even closer to the famous mountain biking centre at Glentress. It has a quiet, rural situation with a well-established garden (with furniture) and plenty of hill and forest walks right from the door.

Traquair is a very genuine little cottage, unpretentious and homely, yet very cosy and a pleasure to return to after a day spent walking, fishing, mountain biking or taking in the sights. It is simply and comfortably appointed and the rooms seem to enfold you in a warm and welcoming embrace.

The cosy sitting room has comfortable sofas arranged round its original fireplace, while there is a rather cute dining alcove tucked in neatly just off the neat, modern kitchen. There is also a downstairs bathroom.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin. As you would expect in this traditional cottage, these bedrooms have coombed ceilings and dormer windows, but have plenty of full-height space too – this all adds to the charm.

It is, in short, an excellent holiday venue either for a family or friends who come here to cycle, walk, ride or simply relax in delightful surroundings.

Map & Local

The nearby village of Innerleithen has a range of shops, pubs and an hotel.

Also nearby is Traquair House, reputedly the oldest continuously inhabited house in Scotland, the Bear Gates of which will 'remain closed until a Stuart sits once more upon the British throne'. As well as being a most interesting house to visit, it hosts many events throughout the year and also has its own brewery. So a visit is likely to please all members of the family!

Traquair is also on the Southern Upland Way, upon which serious walkers can strike out either to the east or the west. For some serious shopping, the pretty town of Peebles (6 miles) has supermarkets as well as an excellent range of smaller shops, a leisure centre and some good eating places. Riding may be booked at the Hydro Hotel there. The MacDonald Hotel at Cardrona, barely a couple of miles from the cottage, has a golf course, as does Innerleithen and Peebles.

The Tweed, as well as being one of Scotland's prime fishing rivers, also has very good sections for canoeing in the immediate area. If a day in the city appeals you can be in Edinburgh in under an hour by car, 50 mins by train from Galashiels (16 miles) or by bus from either Innerleithen or Peebles. Perhaps you could take in a visit to Roslin Chapel, which featured so notably in film 'The Da Vinci Code', on the way.

With all these activities, not to mention the host of stately homes, castles and ruined abbeys to visit, Traquair is not a cottage at which you will become easily bored!

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
