Our Inspector's view
Parts of Barony Castle date back to the 15th and 16th centuries. This stunning Tower House has transformed into a well-appointed modern hotel. Located just to the west of the village of Eddleston in the marvellous Tweedale area of the Scottish Borders with both Peebles and Edinburgh (17 miles) within easy reach. The welcoming bedrooms offer all home comforts, a child friendly environment and dogs are allowed in a limited amount of bedrooms. Every room is unique with differing views of the surrounding castle estate, garden and glen. Award-winning food is available in the 1536 Restaurant with more relaxed offerings in the bar and lounge area. A gym, pool and treatment rooms add to the facilities. The fantastic grounds and gardens are available to explore and there are many bike and forest walking routes around Glentress.

About the area
Discover Scottish Borders
Southern Scotland is often referred to as the Lowlands, to distinguish it from the mountainous grandeur of the North-West Highlands. But don’t be fooled by the description. In places, the landscape can be anything but flat. This is a different Scotland to the rest of the country in terms of character and identity but, in terms of scenery, no less spectacular and just as fascinating.
Jedburgh, despite its turbulent history, is a peaceful country town beside the serpentine Jed Water, with only the abbey walls hinting at its former grandeur. One of the most elegant of the Border towns is Kelso, with its wide cobbled square at its heart. A poignant fragment is all that remains of Kelso Abbey, once the largest of the Border abbeys, destroyed by the English in 1545.
Like most towns and villages in the area, Melrose developed on the back of the tweed and knitwear industry, which brought wealth to the Scottish Borders, utilising the distinctive, Roman-nosed Cheviot Hill sheep and the availability of water power for the looms. Head to Peebles to shop for locally made knitwear and enjoy the peace and fresh air, where walks, trails and cycleways lead into the wooded countryside.
