ETTRICK VALLEY YURTS THE BORDERS
A magical Glamping Experience in the Stunning Ettrick Valley.
Take a breath of fresh air in this stunning scenery and stay for a while in one of our gorgeous brand new Mongolian Yurts. Comfy beds, fresh linens, colourful rugs and cushions, and a cosy wood burner await you in our beautifully furnished authentic yurts.
The views around this small and exclusive site are simply stunning; it really is a romantic idyll.
After dark you can sit around a camp fire, toast marshmallows and gaze at the countless stars visible in the unpolluted night sky
You can easily idle a day away pottering around the stream with the kids. Loads of wildlife to watch out for, games to play, adventures to be had and relaxing to be done. There are plenty of walks in the area (for all levels) if you are feeling like a stroll or a challenge, with maps and directions provided.
It’s a must for cyclists with miles of lovely (but not too challenging) scenery to cycle through – again with many maps and routes available. Fishing, horse riding, and kayaking are all available close-by and how about 4×4 driving, paragliding or a tree top adventure at Go Ape?
The Ettrick Valley is also a wonderful base for exploring the Scottish Borders with its rich cultural and historic heritage, and natural wonders such as the Grey Mare’s Tail and St Mary’s Loch.
Cooking facilities include a gas burner and grill as well as the stove top in your Yurt, and your very own charcoal BBQ and fire pit outside.
Hot showers and proper toilets are a short stroll from your Yurt. We also have a small honesty shop on site for any essentials you may have forgotten as well as a few little luxuries.
