Deloraineshiel is a secluded shepherd's cottage on a working sheep farm, located in the heart of the Scottish Borders. This is The Ettrick Shepherd country, famously portrayed in the works of James Hogg, in which Deloraineshiel is mentioned. Deloraineshiel is the ideal place to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Scottish Borders and is a perfect location to see all that the Borders has to offer. A traditional, local stone, white and black cottage located on the hillside, away from the road and neighbouring properties, Deloraineshiel has magnificent open views of the rugged, scenic landscape. The cottage is close to Hawick, Selkirk, Peebles, Innerleithen, Melrose and Kelso, as well as other Borders towns. Edinburgh is a scenic 1 hour drive away, or you can park the car at Tweedbank Station...

Spent a lovely weekend in this charming well equipped cottage. Difficult to find for townies but well worth the effort. Would loved to have stayed longer. Peaceful and relaxing just watching the wildlife. Cottage lovely and clean everything you could possibly need. Thank you.

Management response:

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking care of our home during your visit. You are correct, not all guests are responsible and I apologies for missing their leftover bowl. We would love to welcome you back. We got the local shepherd to cut a large branch off the tree, so the satellite internet now works...

About the neighborhood
Enjoy the best of all Scotland has to offer, in the often over looked area of natural beauty. We can arrange shooting on the estate or fishing on the rivers and lochs. Many golf courses are within a short drive, extensive walking and cycling routes lead from the house or are close by. We can suggest itineraries for you, perhaps a drive to Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway for shopping, stopping off at the Grey Mare's Tail on the way. A wander around the gardens and house at Bowhill. A cycle to Innerleithen for the world famous mountain biking trails. So many options, but if you just want to relax, just hang out at the house and enjoy the view and bird life.
Getting around
A car is essential. Biking and walking tracks surround the cottage and the area, which is on the edge of the Craik Forrest. Tweedbank railway station is the closes for day trips to Edinburgh.

Be careful using GPS, access is from the B711 between Buccleuch and Redfordgreen. Some GPS systems will take you over the hill from the B7009 at Gilmanscleuch, but that is a dirt track and not a road you can drive up easily. Call us if you have any questions or ask a friendly local!

Tweedbank Station has direct services to Edinburgh. Park your car and enjoy the scenic journey by train for the day.
