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).
