Tushielaw Inn

Welcome to The Tushielaw Inn, a two hundred and fifty year old coaching house, which is located in a particularly attractive part of the Borders enjoying views of the scenic Ettrick Valley. We hope that you will chose to visit us to experience our hospitality and comfort, and see what this old girl has to offer – opening again this year after a wee rest.

The property enjoys fine views set well above the Ettrick Water, situated amidst some of the best Walking, Cycling and Mountain Biking terrain and scenery to be found anywhere in the country. The Southern Upland Way long-distance walk, lies nearby, and the Captain's Road walk.  We are also well placed to offer accommodation to anyone doing Lejog or Jogle on foot or by other means.

Wildlife, fishing, golfing and historic buildings are all available within half an hour’s drive.
