Additional Location Information

The castle is superbly set within a 1,200 acre estate just half an hour's drive from sandy beaches, and is perfectly positioned to make the most of a holiday in Scotland's Border country.
The sea is about 16 miles away at the ancient fortified town and fishing port of Berwick-Upon-Tweed. The Tweed is one of Scotland's premier salmon rivers. Close by are the old fishing villages of Eyemouth, Cove, and Coldingham. The shore at Berwick is predominantly rocky but north of the pier at Spittal is a sandy beach sheltered from the strong tidal currents by an offshore reef. In shore, between the reef and the beach, there is safe bathing.
An hour's drive to the north-east of the Castle lies Edinburgh with its fine shops, magnificent architecture, fascinating museums and many good restaurants and bars. The ancient abbey towns of Kelso, Melrose and Jedburgh are within easy driving distance, and there are several well-known East Coast golf courses in the vicinity - the nearest in the town itself, which has an 18 hole course as well as tennis, a swimming pool and a sports centre.
