Description

Small and exclusive ‘glamping site with gorgeous Mongolian yurts set in a beautiful peaceful Scottish Valley with stunning views. Bookable on line at our website.

Our yurts are green on the outside to blend in with the unspoilt Ettrick Valley. Each sits neatly on its own raised decking with panoramic views up or down the valley over the Ettrick Water and surrounding hills, and a private sitting out area right next to it with a picnic table, BBQ and fire pit.

Wonderfully cosy inside with colourful painted woodwork lit by the 5ft crown in daylight and candles and solar lights at night. Comfy beds, table and chairs, duvets, fresh linens, cushions and blankets as well as all the cooking equipment you will need. Colourful rugs and a wood burning stove will keep you toasty all night long.

Hot showers and proper toilets are a short stroll from your Yurt, and we have a small shop on site for any forgotten essentials as well as a few little luxuries. Free Wi-Fi is also available and plenty of books and games you can borrow.

A stream trickles past the yurts and is a great place for paddling and messing about. This flows into the River Ettrick which is securely fenced off but is easily accessed.

All around are rolling hills, sparkly streams and the gently meandering river creating some of the finest scenery in Scotland. Fresh air and wildlife abound, and there is no light pollution so thousands of stars are visible on a clear night, yet you are only 70 minutes from Edinburgh.

This is a great place for walking and cycling and is a wonderful base for exploring the castles, houses and natural wonders of the Scottish Borders. And then there is golf, horse riding, kayaking, tree climbing at Go Ape and other attractions close enough for a day out.
