DRYBURGH STIRLING TWO, sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms near St Boswells

Family-friendly cottage in Melrose
Built in the early 19th century, Dryburgh Stirling Two with its ornate orchard gate and turrets was originally part of the aristocratic folly of the 11th Earl of Buchan.

Nestled gently on the banks of the River Tweed
Nestled gently on the banks of the River Tweed amidst the rich dramatic beauty of the landscape made famous by the writings of Sir Walter Scott, this is an enchanting spot.

Sitting at the end of a no-through road surrounded by scenic parkland and woodland, the area is steeped in history and heritage, positioned just a stone’s throw from the romantic medieval ruins of Dryburgh Abbey, the mighty sandstone statue of Sir William Wallace, and the Dryburgh chain link bridge.
