Tranquillity, history, and service - the perfect getaway yet only 13 miles from Edinburgh Airport. For nearly 600 years Borthwick Castle has overlooked the gently rolling hills on the edge of the romantic Scottish Borders. One can easily imagine that Mary Queen of Scots looked from her bedchamber window onto a very similar landscape in the 16th Century. The Castles long and illustrious history has romance and drama, and the walls still bear the battle-scars of Cromwells cannon. Nowadays, with central heating and en-suite bathrooms, the castle retains a medieval ambience which charms even the most seasoned travellers.
