Located on the A701 to the South of Biggar in an isolated spot beside the Tweed. Sleeps 4 in 2 bedroom (with pullout bed to make 6). This ex-telephone exchange was renovated in 2006 and offers modern accommodation for the visitor wanting to be in the central dramatic Borders hills.
The Cottage can accommodate up to six people, and has a private decked area and garden. Each bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom, and there is underfloor heating throughout. The Cottage forms part of a former telephone exchange and was just converted in 2006, so everything is new and fresh!
