Surrounded by the glorious scenery of the Scottish Borders, this elegant property sits in a wing of the 1850s built Glen house, boasting 5000 acres of estate land and stunning original features.

Roam the majestic surroundings of this splendid Scottish holiday home to your heart's content with your trusty friends beside you. Immerse yourself in the varied landscapes of the 5,000-acre estate, which sits on the Borders, close to Traquair. Set within a wing of a grand period home, this enticing, characterful home welcomes up to four guests and two of their canine companions. Enjoy long walks beside lochs and rivers from the attractive property then return home to relax in the sunshine in your private courtyard and garden.

Arrive at your impressive holiday home and call the pups in to explore the ground floor with you. They can have the run of this level, with its generous space, flagstone floors and exquisite kitchen, with vaulted, curved, brick ceiling. Feed your hungry hounds in here then wander through to your superb, open-plan lounge/diner to bask before a roaring wood burner in the winter or open the doors out to your pretty courtyard in the summer. Bid your perfect pets goodnight in the evening before heading up to your two bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and the other with its own bathroom. You and your delighted dogs will relish the indoor-outdoor living offered by this elegant property, where you can dine in the fresh air, throw balls on the lawn and wander through woodland and past babbling Scottish burns

This is a magical place. The Old Larder is stunning. If you want a beautiful romantic getaway then this is the place. The owner was welcoming and John the housekeeper was lovely bringing fresh towels. Great place to stay with access to the Glen estate was just incredible. Perfect holiday

They say 'an Englishman's home is his castle'. Well here's your chance to live in one! Wander or drive amidst the beauty of an extensive estate nestled in a valley, where one can walk in the gardens attached to the house or swim in the privately-owned loch.

This is a fantastic location with extensive gardens and estate. The gardens are traditionally beautiful and the estate has great walks and a picturesque Loch. We were able to bring our dog and enjoyed walks and bike rides/trails locally. It is easily close enough to travel to Edinburgh for a day out.

This is a complete get away from it all holiday. Walk in the vast grounds and stretch you eyes, watch out for wildlife or just sit with a good book.

It is so peaceful a lovely place to relax and chill. The scenery is fabulous a great place for walkers.
