The Bothy at Orchard Walls

What to see and do

The Bothy is an ideal base for touring, walking, fishing, golfing or just complete relaxation - the choice is yours.


One and a half miles from Traquair and the oldest inhabited house in Scotland, three miles from Innerleithen (with the  nearest shops and restaurants), and nine miles from the pretty border town of Peebles, you can be assured of one thing; there are so many places to see and things to do that one visit will never be enough. History abounds and lives side by side in harmony with the beautiful Borders scenery.


The pride and passion of the Borderers is clear for all to see. Experience the history of the Reivers by visiting the many summer festivals and 'Common Ridings'. Check the quality of the local crafts. Purchase some of the world's finest knitwear including wonderful Cashmere garments. See with your own eyes these lands which inspired many famous artists and writers. Taste the finest of local produce in many restaurants.


But don't plan too much in advance - let each day take you where it may. There is always the next time to do the things you had first intended!
