A perfect base for a peaceful country holiday, the cottages of Abbey Court, the individual character of the Coach House properties and the spacious apartments within Whitmuir Hall itself, offer a range of accommodation for all tastes, seasons and party sizes. There are 32 acres of private grounds consisting of woodland and lawns, and a recreation building containing a heated indoor swimming pool and games room.
Recreational possibilities include: 21 golf courses included in the Freedom of the Fairways Passport; walking, whether gently through woods and alongside rivers and towns, or on the more challenging Southern Upland and St Cuthbert’s Ways; cycling for all abilities at Glentress Forest (cycle store available at the properties); fishing for salmon and trout on the River Tweed and its tributaries, or on stocked lochs for trout and coarse fish. Historic houses, abbeys and castles including Melrose Abbey (burial place of the the heart of Robert the Bruce); Mary Queen of Scots’ house in Jedburgh; Traquair, the oldest continuously inhabited house in Scotland, and the Roman camp of Trimontium.
