Tweed Rig

Goat Brae, Goat Brae, Melrose, Borders, TD6 9NH

Tweed Rig, was built high with large picture windows and a long South facing balcony to take advantage of the view across the Tweed valley to Melrose, the Abbey and the Eildon Hills beyond. There is an old iron suspension bridge across the Tweed, (before the 1800s people used to cross the river on stilts!) so you can walk to Melrose where there are some fine shops, pubs, hotels, an excellent bistro, Marmions, and a small theatre. Even Gattonside itself has two restaurants, so no driving needed after dinner. Melrose is in the middle of the Scottish Borders a great base for castles, abbeys, country houses, golf courses, wilderness areas, fishing, walking, cycling and Edinburgh is only about an hours drive. Stylish, contemporary and light with a great sense of space, Tweed Rig is available for self catering rental with accommodation for 14 people (or 16 with more beds available on request).
Tweed Rig is in the pretty village of Gattonside by Melrose. Gattonside has two excellent restaurants within walking distance. A 15 min stroll across the river Tweed by a suspension bridge takes you into Melrose where there are shops, pubs, restaurants, a small theatre, etc. Tweed Rig is in the middle of the Scottish Borders making it a great base for exploring the area. Golf, tennis, horse riding, walking, cycling and fishing are all available locally. Excellent mountain biking facility at Glentress. 21 Golf Courses in the area.
