Skirling House in the romantic borders of Scotland was specially built in 1908 for Lord Gibson Carmichael, art collector, Governor of Bengal and friend of author John Buchan. Bob and Isobel Hunter have equipped the house with all the facilities you could want for a wonderful time in the country, while retaining many of the original unique and whimsical features including wrought ironwork by Thomas Hadden and the Drawing Room’s 16th Century Florentine hand carved ceiling. It is conveniently located for visiting both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Accomodation comprises three ensuite bedrooms, one conveniently situated on the ground floor, each with colour TV, direct dial phone and coffee and tea making facilities. The set dinner menu changes nightly and makes use of the plentiful fresh local produce including game, farm cheeses, soft fruit and fish. Skirling House is a member of the Taste of Scotland scheme. A handpicked wine list offers an interesting selection at a range of prices.

Skirling’s convenient location made its green the site of medieval horse fairs and it is still ideally located for trips to the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, and to Dumfries & Galloway. Closer to hand are the Borders Region and The Clyde Valley. In the Borders there are castles, abbeys, stately homes and museums to visit, close at hand in the Clyde Valley Robert Owen’s New Lanark, nominated as a world heritage site.
