Impromptu visit to the outdoor adventure playground due to lovely weather. Just enough parking, plenty of places to sit down. Well maintained equipment for children, plenty of choice for all abilities. Clean area with places to purchase food & drink. Beautiful gardens to look around.

Bowhill House is situated near Selkirk in the Scottish Borders - a lovely region. The estate belongs to the Buccleuch family, who still use it as their family home when in Scotland. Do take advantage of a guided tour, as the guides are very knowledgeable...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the house, given by such friendly and knowledgable guides. The artwork, silver and furniture are beautiful and make you feel a bit like you have stepped onto the Downton Abbey set.
