The Scottish Borders' is a beautiful place to live and visit at any time of the year. With such amazing scenery and lots of different things to do and see, you’ll never be short of activities.
The Scottish Borders cover around 1,800 square miles and are just south of Edinburgh and the Lothians. You can explore the rolling hills whilst enjoying many outdoor activities, and discover the picturesque villages soaking up all the history within this truly magnificent part of Scotland.
Scottish Borders offers an excellent lifestyle for you and your family. Not to mention the new Borders Railway which makes the region more accessible than ever. It takes passengers between Tweedbank and Edinburgh in less than an hour and the trains run every half an hour throughout peak times.
If you’re looking for a retirement home or just somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life, the Berwickshire town of Duns has been known to make an ideal home base for commuters, just 55 miles from Edinburgh, 8 miles from the A1, and only 15 miles from Kelso and Berwick upon Tweed.
Duns offers a mixture of old and new buildings and house styles – a home for everyone! There’s a good choice of amenities and facilities, from excellent schools, award-winning restaurants, a museum and Duns Golf Course which provides stunning views of the surrounding countryside and south to the Cheviot Hills across the Tweed Valley. We are pleased to present to the market 4 Blackerstone Steading. A unique and stunning four-bedroom stone-built Steading conversion.
